Crashed Saab 9-3 Sportcombi

One of the main roads through Salford (UK) was shut for several hours on Thursday evening when a police pursuit ended in a dramatic smash. Policemans say they began pursuing a stolen silver Saab 9-3 Sportcombi before it came off the A6 in Swinton at around 6.45pm, hitting a number of parked cars.

Luckily, in this incident no one has been seriously injured. PC Picton said the Saab 9-3 collided with a Škoda, an Audi and then a Mazda.
