WITH VIDEO: A car has crashed into a house in Portslade following a reported police chase.

The Audi TT left the road in Valley Road, Portslade and hit the wall of the house.

Three men got of out the car and ran away sparking a police search for them.


MORE:


An eyewitness told The Argus: "Police cars were chasing the car and it lost control and ploughed into a wall.

"The police helicopter has been here searching for the missing men.

"There have been police cars going up and down the road. I have never seen so many police cars in my life. There must have been up to 15 with fire crews and ambulances.

"The car has hit the house so hard it has moved the tiles on the roof."

A fourth man was trapped in the car and after being released by Fire and Rescue was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital at Brighton for precautionary medical examination.

It is not yet clear if there was anyone in the house at the time but there are no reports of any injuries. The extent of the damage to the house is also not yet clear.

There are reports that the front of car caught fire after the crash but there are no reports that the fire spread to the house.

A police spokesman added: "The car, which is suspected of having been stolen, had been seen by patrolling police officers a short while earlier, and officers were searching the area for it when it crashed.

"The precise circumstances of that search are being looked into and the matter has been referred to the IPCC as a matter of standard policy because of the police activity at the time."

I've lived here for over 40 years and valley road is not a 'death trap' as long as you pay proper attention. It is quite easy to see traffic coming all along its length. A dread to think of any more 'traffic calming measures', Chalky road is bad enough with vehicles weaving about all over the place.

Anyway, I've just seen the houses in Valley road and there is substantial damage. I've heard no mention of any casualties in the houses so hopefully the owners were out when it happened. Not a very nice surprise to come home to though.

The road itself isn't a death trap, but the manner in which people race up and down it going way over 30 is the issue. Maybe you should stand there and see how many people go flying up and down there.

If they are going to cordon off the road they could have at least cordoned off the bus shelters along that road. I was completely unaware of the incident in the first place and was told by one of the locals that they have cordoned off the road and to walk on towards the Old Village to catch a bus. So I was walking towards it and the police told me to walk up to Mile Oak Rd to catch a bus. I was on my way to work and was nearly late into work. Also it is not like someone was killed on that road so surely it didn't need to be cordoned off for the entire day. A group of men crashed a stolen car, does not need a whole day to be investigated. Such an inconvenience!

Have you actually seen the house/houses affected? It wasn't just a group of men crashing a car, it was a house being totally destroyed with a car embedded in its front window! They obviously had to make sure it was safe. I would rather the inconvenience than have someone squashed by falling debris.

Yes I totally see that however I don't think anyone was actually harmed in the incident. It does say in the article that there was no reports of injuries. So in my opinion I think it was ridiculous to cordon off the whole road for the entire day just to check if anyone was hurt. Does not take the whole entire day, it's ludicrous. Well I would rather not the inconvenience for the entire day because I have to get to work and back.

Lets get some facts into this.

Reality:

A car which was stolen has careered off the road completely damaging not just 1, but 3 houses. A friend of mine lives in the house that juts out which i have been told is going to have to be torn down and rebuilt as the structural integrity has been compromised. To add to this she had just got home with her 18 month old son who was still outside at the time of the incident. Had the house not been jutting out and the vehicle travelled just 3-5 more meters, they would both be dead. This is an extremely lucky incident in the way that nobody was tragically killed, but please bear in mind that at least 3 families now have to be uprooted for some months whilst the buildings are rebuilt. Please think of the innocent families that are going to have to go through months of uncertainty now as they go through this due to the fault of 4 wreckless and uncaring individuals who have no respect and blatant disregard for the law.

Computer games have nothing to do with this and the trolling should stop right now. have some decency and respect.

They didn't cordon off the area just to check if anyone was hurt! They cordoned off that end of Valley Road because firstly it was a crime scene and secondly damage to the houses (with the car still embedded in it) plus bricks and tiles everywhere were a danger to the public. The fire brigade had to cut one suspect out of the car plus the car was not removed for hours because it had to be done so carefully so they could not allow people or traffic going past. Do not forget also that there was still a suspect on the run too. I live locally and it was an inconvenience to me too but, like I said, I preferred to be safe.

Had the house not been jutting out and the vehicle travelled just 3-5 more meters, they would both be dead. This is an extremely lucky incident in the way that nobody was tragically killed, but please bear in mind that at least 3 families now have to be uprooted for some months whilst the buildings are rebuilt. Please think of the innocent families that are going to have to go through months of uncertainty now as they go through this due to the fault of 4 wreckless and uncaring individuals who have no respect and blatant disregard for the law.

Computer games have nothing to do with this and the trolling should stop right now. have some decency and respect.
Hardly trolling. I'd just been playing the game myself and the resemblance of this photo to what happened regularly in the game is astonishing.

Helen I completely agree! I watched the 1964 film Goldfinger, and the so called "hero" drives his car RIGHT into a building. THE RESEMBLANCE IS ASTONISHING! Bricks everywhere. About time we banned these movies, somebody think of the children etc.
