US driver fleeing police smashes through a business' fence to take a shortcut

A driver fleeing police smashed his way through a local business' fence in Hesperia, California.

The multiple camera angles show the driver smashing through the fences on April 26 at speed and then exiting onto the highway.

Tyler, who caught this footage, told Newsflare: "The initial reaction was 'wow just what we needed,' as we had had a very stressful and long week with different problems left and right. I almost wasn’t surprised something like this happened, it was the cherry on one horrible banana split.

"He ended up crashing into a large boulder in front of our other business, an antique shop two doors down. The police caught him and he ended up being uninsured."
