A 17-year-old boy from Sandown has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving following an incident at Yarbridge Crossroads in Brading, in which a Ford Fiesta was almost ploughed into. 

The incident happened shortly before midday on Tuesday 12th May when a Nissan Murano failed to stop for police and failed to stop at a red light at Yarbridge.

The vehicle travelled across the busy crossroads at significant speed, narrowly missing a Fiesta travelling from Sandown to Ryde.

Glad they caught him & really hope they throw the book at him not just a slap on the wrists perhaps a stint in prison will do him good because he sure deserves it


Well hopefully the book of highway code is slapped in his face. Then ordered to resit the whole driving test and theory. After 100 hour’s of community service.
