A MAN was killed when he was flung out of a car in an horrific late night crash.
A driver has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after the tragedy just before midnight last night on Huddersfield Road, Salterhebble, close to Calderdale Royal Hospital.
A black Honda Accord car demolished a wall when it hit roadworks and ended on its roof.
Firefighter Bob Peacock said: "One passenger had been thrown out of the car and across the road.
"A girl in the car had managed to get out, but two others, a man and a woman, were trapped inside the vehicle."
Firefighters working alongside several paramedics cut the seriously injured pair free.
The 21-year-old man thrown out of the car suffered severe head injuries and died.
The 25-year-old driver along with two 17-year-old girls were seriously injured and are in Calderdale Royal Hospital. They all live in Halifax.
Police have revealed that the Honda Accord and a black Rover 600 were both travelling along the road at the time the tragedy happened.
The Rover drove off when the Honda crashed. Officers traced a 29-year-old man and arrested him.
