An unnamed driver has been thrown from a stolen vehicle in a high speed crash, after smashing the car into a garden wall. The Audi TT was apparently stolen as part of a burglary in Derbyshire early yesterday evening, and CCTV footage caught the horrifying moment the car spiralled out of control on a suburban road. The car, believed to be worth £50,000, can be seen hurtling down the road at breakneck speeds while being closely followed by an unmarked police car. In his panic, the driver hits a garden wall of a Walsall, West Mids property, and sends the car spinning and skidding across the road shortly after 9pm. Smoke billows out of the car as it skids, and people can be seen leaving their houses to survey the damage to both car and driver.

The driver, an unnamed 37 year old from the area, was rushed to hospital after the collision but suffered no serious injuries despite hitting the wall on West Bromwich Road at full speed. During a search of the vehicle, cigarettes and other items were found inside. Police are investigating the incident, and believe the car was stolen during a burglary earlier that evening. The driver is understood to be in hospital and under police custody

A West Midlands Police spokesman told The Metro: "Officers noticed a car travelling at excessive speeds on the Broadway North road in Walsall just after 9pm last night. The car then hit a wall on West Bromwich Road where the 37-year-old was ejected from the car. He was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not thought to be serious. It’s believed the car was stolen from a burglary in the Derbyshire area earlier that evening and the investigation will now be run by Derbyshire Police." Chief Inspector Gareth Morris also tweeted: "One male in custody following overtaking and presumably not noticing an unmarked @WMPDogs car, losing control a few seconds later and crashing into street furniture. Car found to be stolen from a burglary earlier on. One in custody via hospital for treatment."
