Jail for ‘erratic’ Hartlepool driver who ran red lights, mounted footpath and almost crashed into oncoming cars



Have your say

A DANGER driver forced motorists to swerve out of his way after he led police on a late-night high-speed chase.

Darren Jenkins, 31, went through two red lights, mounted a footpath and nearly collided with oncoming vehicles during the 12-minute pursuit.

Teesside Crown Court heard he “paid absolutely no attention” to pedestrians walking home from the pub as he sped through residential areas of Hartlepool at up to 70mph in a bid to shake off police.
