The pursuit of a car through Lake has ended with the vehicle crashing into railings, narrowly avoiding traffic, and the occupants fleeing the scene this afternoon (Wednesday).
Officers from both sides of the Solent have been involved in the pursuit of a black Audi A4 estate, which has crashed into railings on the main road between Lake and Shanklin.
Island Echo understands that the occupants decamped from the moving vehicle off James Avenue. The car then continued across a patch of grass and over the main road, crashing head-on into railings.
By luck alone, the car managed to avoid hitting any innocent motorists passing by.
The pursuit began around 15:30 when the driver of the Audi failed to stop.
2 people who fled the uninsured car remain outstanding. It’s known the car’s MOT has also expired.
UPDATE @ 16:40 – The Audi has now been recovered from the scene by a local recovery agent.
Enquiries are ongoing at this time.
