    Police have released the footage showing car crashed into Hopwood Hall College in Rochdale on Saturday evening.

    The horrific moment a Mini Cooper careered off the road and ploughed into a college building - narrowly missing two pedestrians - has been captured on CCTV.

    Police have released the footage showing car crashed into Hopwood Hall College in Rochdale on Saturday evening.

    The driver was badly injured in the smash and extensive damage was caused to the building while Rochdale Road was closed for four hours.

    Police are keen to the two pedestrians highlighted in the footage.

    The incident happened at 7.15pm as the grey Mini Cooper S was travelling along Manchester Road, towards Rochdale, when the driver lost control at the junction of Dane Street.

    The car crossed the central reservation and collided with the railings, before ploughing into the college.

    The driver, a 21-year-old man, suffered head injuries and was taken to Salford Royal Infirmary for treatment.

    He is currently being treated in hospital and his condition remains stable.

    Anyone notice the two other Minis that go by right after the wreck? Wonder if they were being hooligans.
