This is the terrifying moment a mother was mowed down and critically injured by a stolen car doing 60mph in a 30mph zone during a police chase.

The woman was walking along a pavement in Cheetham Hill, north Manchester, when she was hit by a speeding Nissan X-Trail. 

Footage shows the moment the car, which was clocked doing 60mph in a 30mph zone as it was pursued by police, hit the woman then smashed into a wall, bollards, and a parked car. 

In the chaotic aftermath, CCTV footage shows two men dressed in black bail out of the car and run, while a third casually walks away. 

The 36-year-old victim can be seen crawling away from the wreckage. She suffered a broken back, pelvis, and leg. 

Now three men have been sentenced for their role in the incident on April 3.

The driver Ryan Deans, 33, was able to escape from the scene as police chased and caught his passenger Thomas Keogh, 29, after noticing he had a knife. 

After officers stopped Keogh, 29, he ‘pretended to have a fit’, Manchester Crown Court was told. 

Because of a suspected head injury Keogh was given priority, meaning the woman’s treatment was delayed. The court was told police became suspicious of the X-Trail at about 5.45pm on April 3 and decided to follow it. 

The car, spotted at the junction of Waterloo Road and Cheetham Hill Road, was on false plates and had been stolen in a burglary in Longsight, south Manchester, two days earlier. 

Deans panicked after realising he was being followed and a chase ensued. He jumped a red light and hit 60mph overtaking other cars during a two-minute chase. 

Deans mounted the pavement at the junction of Woodlands Street and Cheetham Hill Road, hitting the woman who was thrown several yards.

As police chased Keogh, Deans ‘nonchalantly’ walked away. 

Deans, of Eccles, Salford, was jailed for four-and-a-half years after he pleaded guilty to causing injury by dangerous driving; handling stolen goods; driving while disqualified; failing to stop; and driving without insurance. 

Keogh, from Fallowfield, south Manchester, was jailed for 21 months after he pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicle taking and having a blade in a public. 

He was also banned from driving. Ellis Barrett, of Fallowfield, was sentenced to a community order, curfew with a tag, and disqualified from driving after he pleaded guilty to theft without consent and being carried in a stolen motor vehicle.
