Teen Joyrider Jailed After Running Over Police Officer

Teen Joyrider Jailed After Running Over Police Officer

This is the moment an 18-year-old joyrider with almost 50 previous convictions was captured crashing into a police officer in a stolen car.

Teenager Kash Parkinson received a four-year jail sentence for running over PC Christopher Haxby, leaving the officer with whiplash and shoulder injuries, and causing £14,000 worth of damage.


The footage shows the horrifying moment PC Haxby went flying over the bonnet of his own police car after he was hit by the pint-sized offender, who is just 5ft 2ins.


The incident occurred when PC Haxby attempted to arrest Parkinson for breaking bail - for another stolen car chase offence - when he was slammed into by the 18-year-old.

During the teen's sentencing Judge Martin Savill said PC Haxby 'could've been killed'.

He said: "That to me sums up this young man's approach to life. He couldn't care less. There comes a time when the public has to be protected.


"I can only hope this will offer you some cause to consider where your life is going."

It was reported during his sentencing Parkinson yawned at the news he would spend the next four years of his life in a young offenders' institution.

Parkinson was said to seem unconcerned as he appeared via video link at Minshull Crown Court, in Manchester, as he asked: "How long did I get? How long gets taken off for (time on) remand and that?"

His defence lawyer stated the youngster had suffered 'one of the worst starts in life I have seen described in any pre-sentence report'.

The baby-faced joyrider, who is from Ashton-under-Lyne in Greater Manchester, has been repeatedly reported to the police for car and motorbike thefts and racked up a staggering 48 convictions in only seven years - these include vandalism, drugs offences, assaulting police officers, robbery and theft.
