This is the shocking moment when a forbidden beverage driver leads the police on a high-speed chase before hitting another vehicle at 100 km / h.

Katie Shone, 32, took her mother's Seat Leon car and started driving it out of control on the A194 near South Shields.

The chase, which was captured on dash cam footage, only came to a standstill when Shone drove through a red light on August 13 last year and bumped into a Mini Cooper.

The Newcastle Crown Court heard officials in an unmarked police car were alerted to another vehicle that was traveling too fast on the A194 and then did not stop.

Kevin Wardlaw, prosecutor, said the defendant had already been disqualified for 14 months in 2018 under the influence of alcohol and had no consent to drive her mother's vehicle.

Mr. Wardlaw said: “Between August 12 and 23, the mother was on vacation and the car was at her home address.

She did not give the accused permission to use her vehicle, especially because the mother knew she was being disqualified.

& # 39; The police became aware of the vehicle that was driving at a certain speed … then it drove along the diamond on the road.

The defendant later made a U-turn to go in the opposite direction when the officers activated her blue lights and directed her to stop what she did not do and drove over 60 miles an hour.

"When she came to a roundabout on the A194, the vehicle didn't stop and crashed into the front rear of a Mini Cooper car."

The court heard that Shone from Ryton Court, South Shields, and her passenger, as well as the two inmates of the Mini, were taken to the hospital, where a person had to be treated for an abdominal muscle injury and broken teeth.

Shone admitted to having been charged with aggregate vehicle takeover, disqualification driving, driving without insurance, and dangerous driving, and was sentenced to a 13-month prison sentence that was suspended for two years.

Kevin O & # 39; Brien mitigatingly told the court that it was fortunate that no one had been seriously injured or killed, but asked the court to consider Shone's "terrible" upbringing.

He said, “There was a terrible accident and it's just fortunate that no one was killed or injured in any of the vehicles.

“It is very clear that the accused has lived an absolutely terrible life since he was nine.

"I will not repeat what happened in childhood, but it is clear that it affected her life.

"It took away the chance to grow and develop to do something with her life."

The court heard that Shone had problems with her mental health and drug addiction, but had not always sought help.

The punishment also included 30-day rehabilitation requests with an additional 12 months of drug service.

In addition to the verdict, Shone is banned from driving for another two years and has to pass an extended driving test to regain her driver's license. The scene of the accident is shown

Judge Sarah Mallet told Shone that she needed help to get better.

She said, "You drove into a mini automobile and did a lot of damage.

“You and your passenger were injured, and all the things that were expected to happen if you headed in that direction happened, and it was lucky that it wasn't worse.

“However, it is clear that you have a number of mental health problems but have not always received the help available.

"You had a lot of problems because of relationships that you had in the past."
