The footage below, released by the Metropolitan Police, shows the moment when specially trained police drivers pursue a Mercedes.
The driver of the Mercedes failed to stop for police, taking officers on a high-speed pursuit through London.
Without any regard for the safety of other road users, the fleeing driver narrowly avoids hitting a pedestrian as he tries to run from the police.
Owing to the nature of the suspect’s driving, officers struck the Mercedes to bring the pursuit to an end.
The Met did not release the footage of the actual impact, only the footage of the Mercedes being pursued.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
