VIDEO: Dramatic crash shown in court

Two drivers who overtook a bus and crashed in Plymouth, narrowly missing a pedestrian and a baby, have appeared in court.

Dramatic pictures of the incident in February last year were shown at Plymouth Crown Court yesterday (Thursday).

The video shows people on the bus, which was overtaken by both drivers. The court heard they were racing each other.

We then see a blue car driven by 28-year-old Calburn Mitchell crashing into the back of the red car driven by 26-year-old Wayne Bailey.

Mitchell had previously pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and is serving a 20 month ban. Bailey escaped a ban but was fined for driving without due care and attention.
