We’ve featured on this case – the case of irresponsible teenager who took his father’s Saab 9-3 Sportcombi and tried to outrun police at more than 110mph (180 km/h) in a pursuit through the streets of Bolton and Salford (UK).
Police immediately after published photos, and now here’s a video from police car dash cam.
Miles Horton, aged 18, was spared jail by Recorder Michelle Booth, who told him that he was ‘lucky’ to have been given 12 months in prison, suspended for 18 months, during a hearing at Manchester Crown Court.
Astonishing video taken by a police traffic officer’s dash cam shows Horton overtaking vehicles on the wrong side of the road and going through red lights as the pursuit continued:
Horton only stopped after his car collided with a pedestrian barrier, which damaged the vehicle’s tyres and suspension. The vehicle was written off as a result.
He was arrested and pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and aggravated vehicle taking at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court the following day.
