A woman has been jailed for more than two years after failing to stop for police and then crashing into a car with two people in who were injured as a result.

Marium Khan, 21, of Long Readings Lane, Slough, was disqualified from driving at the time of the incident, which took place on October 11 in Bath Road.

She failed to stop for officers, drove dangerously and then crashed into another vehicle occupied by a 64-year-old man and a 63-year-old woman, who then suffered injuries.

Khan pleaded guilty at Berkshire Magistrates’ Court on October 12 to one count of dangerous driving, one count of driving while disqualified, one count of driving with no insurance, one count of failing to stop for a constable, one count of possession of counterfeit currency, one count of possession of a bladed article and one count of breaching a suspended sentence.

She was sentenced to a total of two years and six months behind bars last Wednesday (November 29).

Investigating officer, PC Nick Macchia, based at Slough police station, said: “Khan’s reckless actions caused two innocent members of the public to sustain injuries when she failed to stop for police officers.

“I hope that this case serves as a warning that serious driving offences such as Khan’s can result in imprisonment, and that police and the courts take a very dim view of driving whilst disqualified.”
