Three people inside the auto, including the driver who has since been arrested, were taken to hospital with minor injuries. The injuries are not, however, considered to be life-threatening. They were not injured.

Fire crews rushed to tackle the blaze at 1.30am at Morehall Close, and used breathing apparatus to protect themselves from the flames. The auto had "quite literally" gone into the house in Rivelin Way, he added.

Paul Cording of the York Police as saying it was astounding no one lost their lives in the incident.

By 7am on Sunday (September 3) police were still at the scene.

It wasn't a golf ball, but a Volkswagen Golf auto which not only embedded itself in the man's living room in North Yorkshire but then caught fire damaging his house.
