A driver who was caught on camera knocking down and seriously injuring a pedestrian in the centre of Cardiff has been jailed for three years.
Mohammad Yousuf Arshad, 23, had been driving along Westgate Street on 26 July when a policeman in a marked vehicle stopped him to conduct a check.
Arshad was a disqualified driver and sped away from the officer squeezing between other vehicles to try and escape.
He drove over the pavement onto Wood Street in his attempt to get away when he struck John Dare who was about to cross the road.
Mr Dare suffered serious injuries including a fractured arm and multiple lacerations.
Mohammad Arshad was sentenced to three years for causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He was also given a 6.5 year driving ban and will have to take an extended driving test after the ban.
