A man used the streets of Peterborough “like a racetrack” as he crashed a hired Lamborghini and injured another motorist.

Gull Khan, 32, weaved in and out of traffic at speed on Bourges Boulevard (A15) before ploughing into the back of another vehicle on 15 March last year.

The impact of the collision caused the rear of the other vehicle, a Seat Leon, to be lifted into the air as it was pushed along the road and into the central reservation.

The collision blocked the carriageway and emergency services attended the scene, which was between Taverners Road and Bright Street.

A man who was driving the Seat was taken to Peterborough City Hospital where he was treated for a fractured nose, concussion and various cuts and grazes.

Analysis of dashcam footage estimated Khan was driving at speeds of at least 75mph – well in excess of the 40mph limit – when the collision happened.

PC Pete Smith said: “Khan seemed determined to use the roads like a racetrack as he drove well in excess of the speed limit and weaved in and out of traffic.

“He showed a complete disregard for the laws of the road and other people’s safety.

“I’m pleased he has now appeared in court and been sentenced for his actions.”
