WATCH | Last-second Decision To Leave Motorway Results In Collision On M6
A 21-year-old man who collided with another car as he recklessly and carelessly swerved across several busy lanes of motorway traffic in a late attempt to leave the M6, has been banned from driving (scroll down for video).
Ishaq Adams, 21, of Kinwarton Close in Yardley, Birmingham, was sentenced on Monday (5th August) at Cannock Magistrates Court after pleading guilty to dangerous driving.
Adams was driving his VW Polo northbound on the M6 near to junction 10a on 21st September 2018 at around 8.30am when he decided to leave the main motorway right at the very last minute.
He swerved from lane two of the motorway across to the slip road which saw him collide with a Peugeot.
Thankfully, the driver of the Peugeot suffered only minor injuries, despite the speed of the impact.
Ishaq was sentenced to a 12-month driving ban and 120 hours of unpaid work.
He was also ordered to pay £285 in costs.
PC Ian Harnett, of Central Motorway Policing Group, said:
“This was reckless driving that could’ve resulted in serious injury or worse.
“We hope that Adams learns from this experience.”
