The Operational Policing Unit of Warwickshire Police have informed us that last night (Wednesday 4 January 2023) saw residents on Stoneleigh Rd, Kenilworth needing to be evacuated after a blue Saab motor vehicle crashed.
The vehicle, that had failed to stop for police on the A46, and reached speeds of almost 150mph, tried its luck on the smaller roads and came into Kenilworth on Dalehouse Lane. As it approached the Cottage pub it crashed into a blue BMW and subsequently into a Peugeot where it ruptured a gas main. Thankfully no one was seriously injured. The driver was arrested and charged with Dangerous driving and Fail to stop for police.
Warwickshire Police would like to thank all the residents affected and also the Engine Public House that became the evacuation centre whilst Warwickshire and Rescue service and Cadent Gas made the area safe.
This was incident 255 of 4 January 2023
