A man has been sentenced to 11 months in prison following a high speed car chase through Peterborough.
Drew Archer-Loader, 25, of no fixed address, failed to stop for Road Policing Unit officers in the Fletton area of Peterborough, at about 3am on December 23, 2014.
The following pursuit saw Archer-Loader drive at speeds of more than 70mph along 30mph residential roads.
The pursuit ended when Archer-Loader lost control at high speed, crashing into a ditch in Stanground and rolling onto the roof. He suffered serious injuries and had to be released by the fire service and treated at the scene by paramedics.
Archer-Loader was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court on Friday (July 3) after changing his plea to guilty.
He received eight months for dangerous driving, plus three months for breach of a suspended sentence. Additionally he was sentenced to four months to run concurrently, for driving while disqualified, and disqualified from driving for 12 months.
PC Craig Wheeler said: “We will continue to target those who drive whilst disqualified and without insurance.
“This result should serve as a warning to those who do so, that you will be dealt with robustly.
“Drew Archer-Loader placed himself and other road users in serious danger. Thankfully, he did not kill or seriously injure anyone else.”
