A dangerous driver who was caught by a police dog after a 90mph chase across Sittingbourne ended in a crash has been jailed for a year.
Scott Savill, of no fixed address, crashed a Mercedes at Key Street in April this year.
The 20-year-old had tried to escape police, driving at 90mph in a 50mph and 70mph in a 30mph before braking sharply and reversing into a police car.
Savill lost control at the Key Street roundabout where he hit a curb and came to a stop facing oncoming traffic.
He was detained by police dog Parker when he got out of the car.
Savill was found to be driving without insurance and without a valid licence. He was also in breach of a suspended sentence.
He admitted dangerous driving and driving without insurance or a licence and was sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on Monday.
Sergeant Barry Carr said: "Savill was a dangerous and reckless driver whose actions put himself and other road users at risk.
"Thankfully this incident came to an end without any serious harm to our officers or the public."
