A man has been jailed for seven months and been banned from driving for 39 and a half months following a crash in Aylesbury.

Mohammed Khan, aged 29, of Victoria Road, Stechford, Birmingham pleaded guilty to one count of dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified, driving over the specified limit for drugs, driving without insurance, and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

On October 17, 2020, Khan crashed into an articulated tanker lorry whilst attempting a dangerous overtaking manoeuvre at the exit of the roundabout near Paradise Orchard.

Khan then attempted to run from the scene, but an off-duty officer arrested him after witnessing him along the A41 Bicester Road overtaking vehicles in a dangerous manner.

There were three passengers in the car as a 17-year-old girl broke her arm whilst two others in the car suffered minor injuries.

A forensic analysis of Khan’s blood revealed that he was over the specified limit for two drugs, namely cocaine and benzoylecgonine.

He was charged on 14 April 2021.

He was sentenced on Wednesday (September 15) at Amersham Crown Court following a guilty plea at an earlier hearing at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court.

Investigating officer, PC Alistair Bennett of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, based at Amersham, said: “Khan showed absolutely no regard for the safety of his passengers or other road users during his journey.

“It was a miracle the insecure front seat passenger was not killed because of the collision and that no other parties were hurt as a result of Khan’s appalling driving.

“Dangerous driving frustrates communities and law abiding motorists. We will always deal with offenders robustly.

“I would like to thank the witnesses who came forward and acknowledge the bravery of the officer, who was off-duty when he detained the aggressive defendant, despite having no equipment or backup, before other resources arrived.

"His actions prevented the disappearance of the defendant on that day.”

“Khan was driving at speed and under the influence of drugs and I am satisfied that it will be a long time before he is back on the roads again.”
