The pursuit of a car through Lake has ended with the vehicle crashing into railings, narrowly avoiding traffic, and the occupants fleeing the scene this afternoon (Wednesday).
Officers from both sides of the Solent have been involved in the pursuit of an Audi A4 estate, which has crashed into railings on the main road between Lake and Shanklin.
Island Echo understands that the occupants decamped from the moving vehicle off James Avenue. The car then continued across a patch of grass and over the main road, crashing head-on into railings.
By luck alone, the car managed to avoid hitting any innocent motorists passing by.
The pursuit began around 15:30.
2 people who fled the uninsured car remain outstanding.
UPDATE @ 16:40 – The vehicle has now been recovered from the scene.
Enquiries are ongoing.
