Police Constable Dan Pascoe is seen here being hurled into the air after a stolen BMW crashed into a police road block.

Lee Ralph Adamson, 29, of Heatherwood Drive in Hayes, Middlesex, is seen on CCTV footage hurtling through the road block at around 5.20pm on Sunday July 3, before crashing nearby.

The injured police officer quickly got to his feet and chased Adamson down with a Taser, before collapsing himself.

Adamson has been charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, driving while disqualified, driving without insurance and resisting arrest.

Adamson was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on Friday July 29 and received 23 months in prison after pleading guilty to all charges.

Inspector Chris Colley, head of Surrey police's roads policing unit, said: "The officers, particularly PC Pascoe, had to react extremely quickly and despite the shock and possible injuries they may have sustained during the collision they were determined not to let the suspect get away.

"Thankfully PC Pascoe only sustained minor injuries as a result of the collision, but it's clear that the extremely dangerous manner in which the stolen vehicle was being driven could easily have resulted in a tragic outcome.

"Adamson rammed the police vehicle at high speed and it is only good fortunate that prevented an officer or a member of the public from being seriously injured or killed.

"His actions were appallingly irresponsible, and I welcome the lengthy court sentencing which sends out a clear message that Surrey Police will keep tackling vehicle crime and those found to be committing offences in the county will be dealt with robustly and put before the courts."
