A banned teenager driver who was chased by police days before his 19th birthday, celebrated his big day with a ‘car crash’ cake.
Jack Brennan led police on a late night chase after he refused to pull over when police saw he was driving with no lights.
A court heard how the teenager, who was banned from driving at the time, narrowly avoided collisions with other cars during the eight minute chase in his Vauxhall Vectra.
But just three days later, Brennan celebrated his big day with a specially-made cake which featured a road, crashed vehicles and police cars.
The brazen teen from Llanelli, South Wales, posted a picture of the cake on Facebook.
He wrote: ‘Haha what a day.
‘Would like to say I have the best friends in the world, fair play to you lot cake is hilarious, I have learnt with my lessons with my mistakes and time to move on past that.
‘Onwards and upwards.’
But in court the teenager’s defence barrister said his client appreciated the ‘seriousness’ of the situation.
A court heard how Brennan failed to give way at crossroads, ignored ‘no right turn’ signs and almost collided with railings and other cars.
Ellie Morgan, prosecuting, described the teenager’s actions as ‘dangerous’ and said he was racing through residential streets at 50 to 60mph.
Brennan admitted dangerously driving on February 17 and also entered guilty please for failing to stop for police, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.
Richard Morgan, defending, said: ‘He appreciates the seriousness of the situation in light of his history.
‘He came to the Llanelli area from London where he had been living for three years.
