A helmet-cam belonging to Steve Baker MP has caught the shocking moment (scroll down for video) when a reckless and dangerous driver who was fleeing from the police, missed hitting him by a few inches.
Steve Baker MP was travelling in lane two on a motorway on Wednesday evening when a white vehicle shot past him at speed estimated to be in the region of 120 mph.
The speed at which the fleeing driver passes the MP causes him to sway from side-to-side temporarily.
Moments later, the MP’s helmet-cam records several police cars as they pursue the fleeing driver.
Mr Baker tweeted (@SteveBakerHW) to say:
“This was a very close indeed tonight – note where my right mirror comes into shot.
“I guess the car came by me at about 120 [mph]. It stank of hot brakes.
“I definitely stand, once again, in solidarity with our police. Thank you @MetPoliceUK – I Hope you succeeded”.
Supt Andy Cox (@SuptAndyCox) tweeted back to say:
“Thank you for the support.
“Unfortunately the vehicle evaded us tonight, but the investigation now kicks in.
“We treat such utterly appalling dangerous driving and fail to stop for Police incredibly seriously and will do all we can to locate the driver and take action”.
In another tweet posted this morning (26th June), Supt Cox confirmed that officers had now spoken to someone who they believe to be the driver of the fleeing vehicle.
