A 33 year old driver's been arrested after a crash that saw a car fly into the side of a house in Northampton.

The crash at Swinford Hollow, Little Billing at 8.40pm on Wednesday 3 April 2013 left the driver and a 25 year old woman passenger seriously injured.

The 33 year old driver from Thorplands, Northampton, was arrested at Northampton General Hospital on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.  He was later released on bail.

The 25 year old woman was later transferred from Northampton General Hospital to the Wargrave Hospital, Coventry.  She was still said to be seriously ill.

The crash involved a green Vauxhall Vectra.  Skidmarks appear to show the car left a roundabout before crashing through barriers, into the house between its ground and first floors.

The people who live in the house had to be moved out because the crash left the building structurally unsafe.  They will be out while repairs are made.

Police say two other houses were also damaged but no-one in any of the houses was hurt.

People who saw the crash, or anyone with information about it, are being asked to contact Northamptonshire Police's Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615.
