Motorist leads police on 145mph chase minutes after being banned from driving
A motorist led police on a 145mph chase through North Yorkshire just minutes after being banned from driving.
Jason Ryder, of Evenwood, Bishop Auckland, was disqualified from driving for 12 months after being convicted of drug driving in March 2023 at Harrogate Magistrates Court.
However, the 45-year-old got into a black Audi A3 and drove off as soon as he left the court building.
He then led police on a chase along Yorkshire roads, driving at speeds of up to 145mph.
Ryder pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified, dangerous driving and failing to stop, and was sentenced to 10 months in jail.
