Video: Wrong-way teen driver tries to flee police

The teenager speeds backwards toward a roundabout and narrowly misses oncoming traffic as an unmarked police car and back-up vehicles attempt to stop him

By PoliceOne Staff

UNITED KINGDOM — A reckless teenage driver attempts to escape police by driving in the wrong direction down a UK highway at 60 mph, cell phone video shows.

The teenager speeds backwards toward a roundabout and narrowly misses oncoming traffic as an unmarked police car and back-up vehicles attempt to stop him.

The chase happened at an estate in Warwickshire, England, during a police crackdown on illegal 'car cruise' events last month, The Daily Mail reported.

One of the boy's friends filmed the pursuit and uploaded it to YouTube.

It appears the driver is finally caught at the end of the chase, but he managed to evade police capture.

'"It's a miracle he didn't kill anyone,"’ a witness said.
