A 14-year-old boy was left for dead after being hit by a car during a police chase.
The boy, Ibrahim Ahmed, can be seen on CCTV flying through the air after being hit by a VW Golf.
Driver Mohammed Casim Hussain, was thought to be driving around 60mph when he hit Ibrahim on a residential road in Luton.
The Metro reported, ‘Luton Crown Court heard Hussain went on to convince a family member to report the car as stolen.
He was yesterday sentenced to 16 months in prison for causing serious injury by dangerous driving.’
Ibrahim had to receive emergency medical treatment as he fought for his life on the pavement close to the incident.
Sergeant James Thorne said: ‘Instead of pulling over in a safe and responsible way, Hussain decided to flee and drove in a dangerous manner that placed numerous people at risk of serious harm. ‘His actions ultimately led to a 14-year-old boy being struck at high speed and left for dead.
‘The pursuing officers did the right thing and stopped – without doubt, their medical intervention saved the life of this young boy. ‘While Hussain continued to try and avoid capture, a thorough and professional investigation led to his arrest, conviction and sentencing we have seen today. ‘Throughout all of this, I would like to reiterate my praise and admiration for the bravery of the victim. ‘His life changed that day, and he continues to have a positive outlook on life and strives for a full recovery.’
