Teenagers were arrested in Luton after a car collided with two vehicles.

Police pursued a car in the Marsh Road area of Luton yesterday (May 26) after it failed to stop for officers at around 10.30am.

The runaway car was already involved in a collision with two vehicles which had resulted in minor injuries.

Marsh Road was closed for nearly two hours until 12.20pm while recovery took place.

An eyewitness said: “My wife and I were waiting for a bus at the stop between Icknield Road and Norton Road when a car came down Marsh Road, going towards Leagrave, at a fantastic speed.

“Close behind it was a police car, and further back was an unmarked police van with its siren going.”

Two teenage boys were arrested on suspicion of aggravated driving offences.

One was released with no further action while the other, a 16 year old from Leighton Buzzard, was charged with driving a motor vehicle dangerously, without insurance or licence, and failing to stop for police.
