Cars were left smashed up and overturned after a dramatic series of Christmas Eve crashes into trees, railings – and even a house.
Vehicles were seen either mangled on the roadside, flipped over in the middle of the street or damaged next to smashed brickwork of a house.
Just a few of the crash scenes emergency services were met with across Birmingham and the Black Country overnight were shared as part of a warning.
Firefighters urged motorists to ‘concentrate while driving’ after the string of nasty collisions on the region’s ‘wet’ streets on the night before Christmas.
In one image, a vehicle was seen crumpled after the driver lost control and flipped over a barrier at the road side on Heartlands Parkway.
Miraculously, there were no injuries and the driver escaped unscathed in the 7pm collision, police said.
Elsewhere, in Sutton Coldfield, a suspected drink driver crashed into a tree – with the aftermath later shared in a photo by police.
The motorist was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and taken into custody by police after failing a roadside breath test.
Sharing an image of the blue vehicle (insert car name if you know it) with front end damage, force response wrote: “Bunit Sutton have responded to this RTC tonight after the driver collided with a tree.
“One in custody for drink driving after a negative roadside breath test! #dontdrinkanddrive.”
Firefighters also shared photos of three crash scenes they visited within just a four hour period on December 24.
One included a red vehicle in the middle of a wet road balanced on its bonnet, with a police car making the scene safe.
A white van which had struck railings on another road was also shown alongside an image of a separate crash into a house.
The red Toyota Supra could be seen completely smashed-up next to the damaged bricks of a house the driver struck.
It is not believed any one was seriously injured in any of the collisions.
Fallings Park Fire warned of the wet road conditions and said: “White Watch have attended numerous RTCs tonight in the space of a 4 hour period.
“Can we ask that you concentrate while driving. Especially with the wet road conditions.
“We’ve attended these jobs with @Wton_fire and @WMFSWillenhall. @WestMidsFire @jameswhiteuk15.”
