ONE man was killed when his car careered off a rural road into a field.
The tragedy on Wakefield Road at Clayton West claimed the life of a 29-year-old driver just after 1am yesterday.
Police have this morning revealed that four men have been arrested in connection with the incident.
The dead man comes from Batley, but has not been named.
He was declared dead at the scene.
The crash happened as three cars were travelling from Clayton West towards the Bretton roundabout.
It is believed two of them collided and one went into the field where it is thought to have rolled over several times.
The car went into the field close to the junction with Kiln Lane.
The two people in the other car were slightly hurt.
The cars involved were a Toyota Carina, a Toyota Corolla and a Nissan Micra.
A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: "There were five people in the cars in total.
"Two were treated at the roadside for minor injuries and did not need to go to hospital.
"Four were arrested and later released on police bail pending further inquiries.
"We would like to hear from anyone who saw these three cars late on Saturday night or in the early hours of Saturday morning."
A West Yorkshire Fire And Rescue Service spokesman added: "The car had gone at least 100m into the field. It was very dark out there and the police helicopter was drafted in to light up the scene."
The death was the second road tragedy in Huddersfield on successive weekends .
Flockton teenager Matthew Peter Dowie was killed when his black Renault Megane crashed into a field after plummeting through a wall off Wakefield Road in Lepton at 12.30pm a week last Saturday.
Mr Dowie, 19, worked as a furniture maker.
A 21-year-old man who was driving another car was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
He was released on police bail.
