Footage of a high-speed chase along London roads has been released by Detective Superintendent Andy Cox, lead for Vision Zero, who investigates fatal and serious road collisions and tackles transport network crime across the capital.
In the astonishing footage, recorded on an officer's dashcam, the speeding vehicle can be seen attempting to make a sharp turn to double-back at a main junction to avoid arrest.
The pursuing officers made a split second decision to cross the road's central reservation to cut the dangerous driver off.
The police vehicle can be seen slamming into the side of the car, causing it to become wedged against the road's metal railings.
An officer can then be seen jumping over the bonnet of the now immobilised vehicle to detain the driver.
The terrifying chase through London's quiet roads saw speeds exceed 100mph with the offender at times driving on the wrong side of the road.
The driver was confirmed to be driving under the influence of drugs. He was also without a valid driving licence and insurance.
Detective Superintendent Andy Cox, said: "Today I reviewed video from yesterday of '3 fail to stop's (FTS) for police in London. The clip is FTS who at times drove on the wrong side of the road & at speeds over 100mph.
"This dangerous driver was #DrugDriving with no insurance & licence. Arrested. Atrocious driving risking life."
