This is the moment a man who rammed into a police car during a chase fled from his stolen vehicle.
Drew McWilliam, of Cotefield Road, Wythenshawe, has been jailed after he was caught driving dangerously on October 29, last year.
In a clip released by GMP McWilliam can be seen running away from the stolen BMW at Lancaster Services, off the M6, after he was being chased by officers.
Earlier on the same day McWilliam was spotted driving the stolen car from a home in Timperley.
The 25-year-old then changed its plates in Wythenshawe, before he set off driving on the M6.
McWilliam was found guilty following a three day trial at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.
He was sentenced to three years in prison for handling stolen property and one year for dangerous driving, to run concurrently.
Sgt Andrew Torkington of GMP’s Specialist Operations Team, said: “McWilliam, in his reckless driving, was a risk to himself, our officers and the public, I can only imagine the damage that could have been caused if he’d carried on.
“Our team of dedicated and highly trained officers work around the clock to put a stop to those who evade the law and put others’ lives in danger.
“We are busier than ever, targeting people like McWilliam in order to secure the appropriate sentences for their crime.”
