Police are hunting a runaway driver who caused two Leamington road accidents in one night.
The first crash happened at 10.30pm on Friday, when the black Peugeot 307 left the Shakespeare Inn and then smashed into a parked black Honda on Mill Street in Harbury.
The collision forced the Honda into the wall of a residential home on the street, significantly damaging the car and the building.
The car left in the direction of Southam before crashing into a ditch on the Bascote crossroads on the A425. The driver, a man, was seen leaving the scene on foot.
A445 Leamington Road in both directions closed, heavy traffic due to accident, car and a motorbike involved between Paget's Lane and A423 Oxford Road.

The Space Healthcare clinic in Leamington Spa is the first place in the UK to offer the procedure, known as Raindrop corneal inlay, after it was developed in America.
It involves a tiny implant, no bigger than a pinhead, which sits inside the cornea and increases its curvature, allowing the eye to focus properly again.
It's designed to tackle presbyopia - a condition which affects people's ability to switch focus between near and distant objects, especially in old age.

91-year-old Sydney Pavier was attacked at his home in Gordon Street in September last year and died as a result of his injuries six weeks later.
Police say they do not know why Scott Melville, 39, of no fixed address, broke into Mr Pavier's home.
DCI James Essex from Warwickshire Police said:
“Sydney was found badly beaten, lying unconscious on his bed, when relatives called to see him on the morning of 16 September last year.
"The door had been kicked in and the house ransacked.
“Despite his horrendous injuries, Sydney battled to live, but more than a month later on the 28th October he sadly lost his fight for life.”
A garden inspired by Royal Leamington Spa and made by people in the town has won a silver medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.
The exhibit was designed by Debbie Cooke and put together by florist Sarah Horne, with Warwickshire-based metal sculptor Clive Sanderson making its Regency-style arbour enclosure.
It is the first time they have combined their artistic efforts - and they hope that the garden will reflect the spirit of Leamington.
The ambitious project has been managed by BID Leamington, and around 70 local businesses have contributed.
Around 160,000 visitors are due to attend the five-day show, which runs until Saturday, and more than three million people are expected to tune in to the TV coverage.
Two primary school pupils have been disciplined after spiking a teacher's coffee with a "home-made concoction" thought to contain bathroom products.
Clapham Terrace Community Primary School in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, declined to say what punishment had been given to the boys involved in the incident.
The teacher, named in reports as Emma Place, is believed to have been warned not to drink the doctored flask of coffee by other pupils.
In a statement confirming that disciplinary action had been taken, Clapham Terrace's chair of governors, Philip Robbins, said the teacher involved did not wish to press criminal charges.
Mr Robbins said: "During the first week of the summer term, two of our older pupils added a home-made concoction, believed to be a mixture of bathroom products, to a teacher's drink on her desk in the classroom.
"The teacher was alerted to this and did not drink her drink.
"With the cooperation of their parents, the two pupils concerned were removed from their normal lessons and were disciplined by the school, in a manner consistent with the school's normal pastoral policy.
"Pupils will receive ongoing guidance and counselling within school."
Mr Robbins said Warwickshire Police have been informed of the incident and had liaised with the headteacher.
But he added: "Neither the teacher concerned nor the school intends to press charges.
"Clapham Terrace School is proud of its reputation as a caring school where pupils' behaviour and the school's pastoral care are of a very high standard.
"Our main concern, following this incident, is to protect the best interests of our children and their families, and to support the teacher concerned, and other members of staff so that the school can put this incident behind it and continue with its normal business."
Warwickshire Police said officers had been called to a school in Leamington Spa following concern for the safety of a person.
Advice and guidance had been provided by officers to children at the school, which had determined that the "isolated incident" could be dealt with by staff, a police spokesman said.
