A teenager crashed head on into another car when he overtook other vehicles approaching a blind bend, a court heard.
Jordan Foster was already a disqualified driver following an earlier incident in 2014 when he was involved in ramming a police car during a chase.
Nadim Bashir prosecuting told Leeds Crown Court only a few months later on July 29 last year he began to overtake five cars ahead of him on Liley Lane, Upper Hopton.
Foster was driving a blue Ford Fiesta with passengers in the direction of Colnebridge and ignored the solid white line which was against him as he overtook at speed. One of the drivers he overtook estimated him to be doing 60mph.
“Having completed the manoeuvre as he attempted to pull back in coming out of the bend, he lost control of his car skidded into the opposite carriageway and into a head on collision with a BMW.”
Mr Bashir said the Fiesta flipped on to its roof after demolishing part of a dry stone wall.
John Mann, the driver of the BMW said he was less than 100 metres from the bend when he suddenly saw the Fiesta come flying round out of control with the rear fishtailing. The collision caused his air bags to deploy.
A policeman who spoke to Foster at the scene asked him what had happened and he said that the car “started to swerve, nowt I could do.”
David Gregory representing Foster said he was very sorry for what had happened. He had tried to get his life together since and there was a very positive report from the probation service.
Foster, 19, of School Street, Lindley, admitted dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and having no insurance.
He was given a total of 11 months in custody suspended for 18 months with a 30 day rehabilitation requirement and 120 hours unpaid work. He was also banned from driving for two years.
Recorder Martin Simpson said it was fortunate that no one was seriously injured although people were hurt. The offences crossed the custodial threshold but he was able to suspend the sentence because the reports are “exceptional in your favour.”
