A banned driver who crashed a car during a police pursuit in Hull after failing to stop has been jailed for three-and-a-half years.
Liam Robinson was driving a black BMW when officers followed it from the Melton junction on the A63 until it hit another car on Anlaby Road, on 9 June.
It left three people injured including Robinson himself, police said.
He previously admitted four charges including causing serious injury by dangerous driving at Hull Crown Court.
Robinson, 33, of Queen’s Gate Street, Hull, was further disqualified from driving for nine years and nine months when he was sentenced on Tuesday.
He had pleaded guilty to driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance, as well as fraudulent use of a registration mark, at a hearing before the city’s magistrates in June.
Humberside Police said officers chased Robinson when he “failed to stop after officers received information that the driver of the vehicle was disqualified”.
The pursuit ended when he collided into a black Skoda Octavia near the junction of De La Pole Avenue.
“The driver of the Skoda sustained serious injuries which were not life-threatening. Both the driver and the passenger of the BMW sustained minor injuries,” a spokesperson for the force said.
“No officers were injured as a result of the pursuit.”
The force said a mandatory referral was made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct “due to the injuries sustained”.
“Officers from our Professional Standards Department investigating the referral have submitted a report which remains with the IOPC for consideration”, the spokesperson added.
