A man has been taken to hospital after ploughing into a garden wall while fleeing police in Darlaston this morning (12 Feb).
The 40-year-old from Wolverhampton failed to stop for officers in Victoria Street after running through a red light shortly after midnight. And as traffic police gave chase, the blue Ford Focus reached speeds of 100mph in a 30mph zone.
The driver eventually lost control on Bilston Road at the junction with Darlaston Road and demolished a lamppost and a wall before coming to rest in a garden.
He was taken to Walsall Manor Hospital with minor injuries and will be questioned on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol andÂ dangerous driving.
The road was closed with diversions down Whitley Street while debris was cleared.
