This is the heart-stopping moment an Audi driver smashes into a lorry during an 80mph police chase, injuring a ten-year-old girl and her mother who were travelling with him.  

Jake Ilsley, 26, sped off after officers tried to pull him over in connection with an unrelated incident.

Ilsley, who had the two passengers in the car, accelerated along Smorrall Lane in Bedworth, Warwickshire, on November 23 last year, ultimately reaching speeds of up to 84mph.

PC Jack Maguire chased Ilsley, who drove on the wrong side of the road as he desperately tried to outrun police.

Terrifying CCTV footage shows Ilsley speed over a crossroads and smash into a skip lorry with such force that the truck spins 180 degrees.

Ilsley, of Kersley in Coventry, admitted dangerous driving, exposing a child to unnecessary suffering/injury, failing to stop and driving without insurance. He was jailed for 14 months and banned from driving for four years and seven months

Recorder Nicholas Syfret told him: ‘The police perfectly properly wished to speak with the driver of a car, and it turned out you were that driver.

‘For no good reason, you accelerated away from the police car and were pursued for a period of about five minutes, with the car reaching speeds of some 84mph.

‘It came to an end in a way that everybody must regard as fortunate that nobody actually died, because of the number of people who had the potential to be killed – yourself, both of your passengers, people in any other car.

‘It was an utterly shocking piece of driving. It is utterly inescapable for the court to pass an immediate custodial sentence.

‘I am in no doubt you are genuinely remorseful, but this is simply much too bad a piece of driving to allow you to keep your liberty.’

PC Maguire said: ‘Ilsley’s shocking, reckless and utterly thoughtless actions endangered the lives of himself, his passengers and members of the public.

‘It is a miracle that nobody was seriously hurt.’
