Man crashed car into wall after police chase in Carlisle

A young motorist who crashed his car into a wall after a late-night police chase has appeared in court in Carlisle.

Martin James Blyth, 19, of Briar Bank, Belah, admitted driving a Renault Clio dangerously, failing to stop after an accident and having no insurance.

Carlisle magistrates heard that on February 24, police saw a car being driven at speed late at night from the car park in English Damside in Carlisle.

Officers in pursuit lost sight of the vehicle.

A crash was reported to police around 15 minutes later near Briar Bank - a Renault car that had gone into a wall on Scotland Road. Officers realised it was the same car they had chased earlier.

Chris Toms, defending, said Blyth panicked when he saw police chasing him as he had no insurance.

Magistrates imposed an interim driving ban pending sentence at Carlisle Crown Court on April 19.
