A police dashcam captured this terrifying footage of a vehicle doing 75mph in a 30mph zone on the wrong side of the road before crashing into a driveway.
In the clip, Callum Molloy, from Castle Gresley, Swadlincote, in Derbyshire, flouts road laws as he ignores lane markings and wildly swerves across the road in his Ford Fiesta.
Even as two of his tyres blow out he tries to keep going, before crashing spectacularly into a driveway as the police car collides with him.

The car, which was travelling at 75mph in a 30mph zone, narrowly avoids colliding with an Audi on the opposite side of the road
After the five-mile high-speed chase, Molloy still attempted to run out of his car to escape PC Owen Davies from the Avon and Somerset Constabulary.
The officer began chasing him after spotting him driving at 96mph through roadworks on the M5 where an advisory limit of 40mph was in place at 12.25am on December 5, 2017.
Callum Molloy, from Swadlincote in Derbyshire, was given a 20-month suspended jail sentence and was disqualified from driving for two years at Taunton Crown Court
During the pursuit, Molloy drove on the wrong side of the road, crossed double white lines, went through red lights on a crossroads at 70mph, mounted and drove across a pavement and reached speeds of 75mph in Taunton Road, where the limit is 30mph.
At one point, an Audi travelling in the opposite direction was forced to take evasive action to avoid a collision as Molloy drove straight towards it.
Molloy ended up crashing his car at Puriton Hill. The chase lasted around five minutes.
The 24-year-old was given a 20-month suspended jail sentence and was disqualified from driving for two years after admitting charges of dangerous driving and driving with no insurance at Taunton Crown Court.
PC Davies, from the Roads Policing Unit, said: 'Callum Molloy had no regard for other road users' safety that day and drove at extremely dangerous speeds during the pursuit.
'Towards the end of the incident he was continuing to drive despite the vehicle suffering two blown tyres.
'His actions could easily have had fatal consequences had he been in collision with another motorist or pedestrian.'
