A BATLEY man who ran red lights, drove the wrong way down one-way streets and rammed a police car during a chase is being hunted after skipping bail.
Police now believe Daniel Dunne, 24, may have left the country and fled to Spain, possibly in Malaga.
Dunne failed to attend Leeds Crown Court July 21, 2010 where he was due to be sentenced for dangerous driving, causing harm through reckless driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance.
On June 21 last year at around 9:50pm, police spotted a Peugeot 406 being speeding around the Wilton Estate in Batley.
The officers signalled for the driver to stop, but he raced away from police and a pursuit began.
During the pursuit the Peugeot, which was being driven by Dunne, went through red lights, was driven on the wrong side of the road and down one-way streets and was repeatedly reversed at police cars.
In his attempt to evade the police, Dunne even rammed one police car on Carlinghow Lane leaving the officer driving the car with minor injuries.
Dunne was eventually stopped on White Lee Road where he was arrested.
Detective Sergeant Louise Holbrook of Huddersfield police said: "Dunne was responsible for a number of serious crimes and during his joy-ride across Heckmondwike and Batley that night, put the lives of police officers and the public at serious risk.
"We believe that Dunne left the country and went to Spain in an attempt to escape punishment for the crimes he committed, but we are determined to track him down and would appeal for anyone with any information on his whereabouts to contact the police or Crimestoppers."
Dunne is described as a white man, around 6ft 4ins tall and of athletic build. He has light brown hair and blue eyes.
Anyone with any information on Dunne's whereabouts is asked to contact DS Holbrook via 0845 6060606 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
