This dramatic footage, captured by the dashboard mounted camera on a police patrol vehicle, shows the pursuit of a reckless driver who drove at speeds in excess of 90mph with a four-year-old child in his car before losing control and it flipping the vehicle.
Dangerous driver Scott Tony Smith reached speeds of almost 100mph as he was pursued by police through Stanley, County Durham after being seen driving recklessly.
In footage shown to Durham Crown Court, Smith's MG Rover is seen weaving in and out of traffic on 30mph residential roads before speeding on to rural lanes where it flipped over a hedge and into a field after emerging from a T-junction at a dangerously high speed.
Smith, the four-year-old boy and a woman, who was also in the car, all escaped without major injuries despite the child not being seated in a secure child seat.
The astonishing footage captured the car flipping in the air before landing in a farm field.
Judge Robert Adams sentenced Smith, who was also in breach of a suspended sentence, to 12 months in prison.
The judge told Smith: "This is a bad offence, you drove when you knew you were disqualified and you knew there was a four-year-old in the car and that it was not properly restrained.
"You ignored the police car and it's sirens and flashing lights, you ignored the pleas of the woman in the car.
"You could have killed somebody, it was really a miracle you did not."
