A man who died after driving his car into a house in a sleepy village intentionally killed himself after an argument with his partner, an inquest heard.

Lukasz Cuipak, 34, had gotten into an argument with his partner several days before he took his own life, accusing her of cheating before putting his hand on her throat, according to evidence heard in Hull Coroner’s Court.

His partner scratched his face in defence, the court heard.

A few days later, on Friday, 22 January, Lukasz Cuipak took his own life by accelerating into a house in Leven , East Yorkshire.

Mr Ciupak was seen on CCTV footage driving in and out of Leven six times, Hull Live reported.

At around 9pm, residents living on North Street reported hearing a "loud rumble" that sounded like an "earthquake". They did not hear any screeching sounds of brakes, nor skidding.

When residents went out to see what had happened, they saw a silver Renault Scenic car on its side against the garden wall of a home, with an unconscious man inside.

Paramedics arrived and he was declared dead at the scene.

PC Sean Hutchinson from Humberside Police said Mr Ciupak was driving at 90mph in a 30mph zone when he hit a residential building.

He also confirmed that after checks on the car, it was confirmed that there were no brake failures or other distractions that could have caused the accident.

Mr Ciupak, 34-year, and his partner moved to the UK from Poland in October 2020.

He lived on De Grey Street with his housemates, who described him as "reserved" but "clearly having issues with mental health", particularly during the latter days of his life.

Coroner Lorraine Harris said from the toxicology report, it was clear that Mr Ciupak was neither under the influence of alcohol, nor drugs when the accident occurred.

He had a small trace of amphetamine and THC in his blood, but the level was very low and would not have had an impact on him.

She therefore ruled his death to be suicide, stating he intended to take his own life that day.
