THREE youths fled from a stolen car after a smash in Newsome.
A red Ford Mondeo stolen from Dewsbury on Saturday hit a Citroen Saxo travelling the opposite way on Wood Lane at 11.50am yesterday.
The Mondeo then smashed into a parked Renault 19.
Pc John Thompson, of Huddersfield traffic police, said: "The force of the impact spun the Renault around three times and sent it careering into a wall."
A 39-year-old Lowerhouses woman driving the Renault suffered minor chest injuries.
All three cars were badly damaged and the Mondeo ended up at the entrance to the Ashenhurst student accommodation.
Three white youths clambered out and ran off.
