The above video shows the shocking moment a pedestrian avoids death by a matter of centimetres after a drug-driver crashes into a wall, following a 100mph police chase.

Dramatic CCTV footage shows Louis Moore, 21, leading officers on the high-speed pursuit though the streets of Birmingham on 4 January last year.

The motorist can be seen hurtling along 30mph residential roads in the Cotteridge area of the city before losing control of a stolen Ford Fiesta.

A close call

Shocking video, released by West Midlands Police, shows a man withdrawing money from a cashpoint as the car ploughs towards him.

The pedestrian manages to leap out of the way at the last second as Moore smashes his vehicle into a Kwik Fit garage next door, scattering debris across the car park.

The shaken pedestrian can be seen hobbling away as a police officer checks on his welfare, before he returns to the ATM to collect his money.

Over the legal limit

Moore, of Northfield, Birmingham, was found to be over the twice the permitted cannabis level for drivers and only had a provisional licence.

He was jailed for two and a half years and disqualified from driving for four years and three months at Birmingham Crown Court last Thursday (14 March).

Moore previously pleaded guilty to two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving after his teenage passengers were also badly hurt in the horror crash.
