Car is left teetering off bridge after crash that sent passenger plunging into canal

A car passenger had to jump into a canal to escape this crash.
A Vauxhall Corsa was left dangling off a bridge after the late-night smash.
Its driver was able to clamber out on to the road but the front seat passenger had no choice but to leap into the water to escape the wreckage.
The hatchback destroyed the bridge wall and had only two wheels on the ground as it teetered over the canal.
Amazingly the driver and passenger were unhurt in Wolverhampton.
Dramatic photos show the hatchback balancing over the edge with only two wheels touching the ground.
The car managed to completely destroy the bridge's wall but stopped short of falling into the water. Narrowboat owner Stephanie Hardman said: "They crashed at approximately 2am on Saturday morning.
"Both occupants were fine, but the passenger opened the door and fell into the canal.
"That's what the police officer on the scene that I spoke to said.
"When I stepped out of the back of the boat I saw it and then walked closer to have a look."
