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.
The 4×4-style vehicle did not appear to have an MOT, tax or insurance.
A spokesperson for Isle of Wight Police said:
“This was captured on Dash Cam, and the video was shared widely on social media.
“In the early hours of this morning (Tuesday 19 May) officers arrested a 17-year-old boy from Sandown on suspicion of dangerous driving.
“He remains in custody at this time.”
