POLICE captured the moment a car careered off the road after they had attempted to pull it over near Bury town centre.

The Audi came off the road after it failed to stop for police in the early hours of Sunday.

Apparently, the driver had taken his dad’s car without permission, said police.

Miraculously he escaped injury.

Neighbourhood officers say they spotted the car on a major road before losing control.

The driver was arrested at the scene for suspected drink driving after a roadside test.

He was also arrested on suspicion of taking the vehicle without consent.

A spokesman for GMP Bury North said: “Here's one from the early hours on Sunday.

“Lad took his dads vehicle, failed to stop for officers along Angouleme Way Bury but ended up here...thankfully with no injuries!

“Driver arrested TWOC (taking without consent) and drink drive, blew over double the drink drive limit.”
