A suspected ‘boy racer’ crashed into two parked cars near Harrogate’s Asda supermarket in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

A bystander took photos of the aftermath on Dragon Parade near to the roundabout at around 2am and sent them to the Stray Ferret.

The resident said he left his house nearby after hearing a loud noise coming from the road. He said the people inside the car that crashed “did a runner” and nobody appeared to be hurt.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said no arrests have been made related to the incident.

There has been a longstanding issue of fast and loud cars driving through the town. Asda car park is regularly used as a meeting place for boy racers.

North Yorkshire Police launched “Operation Chrome” this summer to target speeding and illegally modified vehicles.

Superintendent Steve Thomas said:

“We are taking a zero tolerance approach to this dangerous behaviour.”
