A 23-year-old man jumped out of a moving car while trying to escape from police on Saturday in Narva.
At approximately 10 p.m. on Sunday the police were carrying out a routine traffic inspection on Kangelaste prospekti tänaval when they signaled for the driver of a Volkswagen to stop, who ignored the signal and drove on.
The police patrol followed the car and saw the driver exceeded the speed limit, drive over green space, drive in the wrong direction and make several dangerous moves.
When officers arrived at Vestervalli tänaval, the driver jumped out of the car and the car continued to move for about 60 meters.
The man tried to escape from the police but was caught. Nobody was injured in the event.
The man did not have a driving license and he has been previously penalized for driving without a license. A criminal proceeding has been started.
The police are reminding people to report dangerous driving or if they know someone is driving without a license to 112.
