Driver jailed after hitting 90mph in 30-zone in police chase

A DRIVER who led police on a high-speed chase that even his own defence barrister admitted was “nine minutes of madness” has been jailed.

Officers tried to stop Mohammed Hussain, 21, after seeing him run a red light in the Marshfields area of Bradford at around 12.40am on July 18 last year.

Instead of pulling over, Hussain sped off in his Toyota Yaris, with the ensuing chase taking in main roads including Southfield Lane, Little Horton Lane, and Manchester Road.

Prosecutor Laura McBride told Bradford Crown Court that Hussain hit a top speed of 90mph in a 30mph of St Enoch’s Road, also topping 70mph on parts of the A641.


She said that at one point during the nine-minute pursuit, “pedestrians had to jump out of the way to narrowly avoid being hit”.

Police tried and failed to use a stinger to stop Hussain, but he was eventually detained and arrested, going on to claim that he wasn’t the driver.

he court heard that Hussain, of Smiddles Lane, Bradford, was on licence at the time of the offence after being given a 30-month sentence in a young offender institution in 2016 for possession with intent to supply heroin and cocaine.
