MERSEYSIDE Police have confirmed that
they have launched an investigation after after a video was posted to social
media in recent days, showing dangerous driving. The video shows a green BMW 328
estate repeatedly sliding around a roundabout, on Benthams Way, Southport and at
1 point the vehicle comes close to colliding with an NWAS Ambulance, that was
driving onto the roundabout. Enquiries are ongoing to identify who was driving
the car at the time of this offence, believed to have happened in recent days.
Inspector Keith Kellett from Merseyside Roads Policing said:- "We are well
aware of this incident and are making extensive enquiries to identify the person
responsible. I would like to reassure members of the community that we will not
tolerate such dangerous driving on the roads of Merseyside. Manoeuvres like
drifting are incredibly reckless and it is through luck alone that there was not
a serious accident, potentially involving the Ambulance. If drivers behave in
such a way it is inevitable that someone will be hurt and we will be relentless
in identifying those responsible and removing them from the roads."
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact:- 101 or
Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.
