A SOUTHEND man has been jailed after crashing into 10 cars, attempting to flee the scene and possessing class A drugs. 

Alex Green, 34, has been jailed for three years and three months and banned from driving for five years and eight months. 

On July 5, last year, officers in Hounslow received reports at roughly 1am from members of public in Grove Park Road, Chiswick, in relation to a male driving a vehicle erratically and crashing into numerous parked cars on the road - seemingly intentionally. 

Several units made their way to the location, arriving within minutes of the first 999 call being made.

The vehicle, a Black Jeep, had crashed into around 10 other vehicles causing extensive damage to vehicles, roadside furniture and property at the location.

The driver of the Jeep, Green attempted to flee the scene on foot but was detained thanks to the quick response by the officers.

He was subsequently charged with various driving offences along with Possession of a Class ‘A’ drug.

The post charge investigation was taken on by officers from Response Team D who were contacted the next morning by the owner of the Black Jeep to report it stolen shortly before Green rammed the parked vehicles.

A charge of aggravated vehicle taking was subsequently added by Crown Prosecution Service.

Following an extensive investigation, with support from members of public on Grove Park Road who attended court, Green pled guilty to all offences at Isleworth Crown Court in January 2019.

Green was sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on March 8 to three years and three months imprisonment and banned from driving for five years and eight months.

Inspector Peal, Hounslow Response Team D Inspector said, “This is great investigative work by Hounslow D Team officers to apprehend and charge this suspect for multiple offences. It’s brilliant to see such robust sentencing for a crime that had the potential to put many innocent lives at risk.

"This is a fantastic example of the community and Police working together resulting in an offender, who put other life’s at risk, being jailed for over 3 years and who will not be able to cause any further havoc on the road for a further 30 months after being released from prison."
