A helicopter was scrambled to hunt for suspects after a car crashed through a fence in Thorpe St Andrew in the early hours of today.
Firefighters from Carrow were called to the crash, which happened near the junction of Plumstead Road East and Furze Road at just after 1.30am.
A Citroen C2 had crashed into the front garden of a home and firefighters attended to make sure the scene was safe.
The people who had been in the car fled the scene, with one person spotted running down Furze Lane.
The police scrambled the National Police Air Service helicopter to hunt for the suspects, but they have yet to be located.
A police spokeswoman said inquiries would continue today and asked for any witnesses, or anyone with information, to call Norfolk police on 101.
The car had been removed from the garden by 3.20am.
