The tractor driver suffered minor injuries.

Read HERE about the court case.

York Crown Court heard that Foster, whose friend was in the passenger seat, drove at speeds of over 90mph, overtaking cars despite oncoming traffic on windy roads with tight bends and blind crests.

Police have said there were five dogs inside the car; they have all been rehomed.

He sped through Allerston and Ebberston, overtaking a series of vehicles in ‘no-overtaking’ zones and mounting a grass verge on two wheels, his car “almost toppling over”, following another near-miss.

The vehicle then swerved back into the road, crashing into the side of a tractor which toppled over on to its side.

Foster and his friend were also injured.

Foster, of South Bank, Redcar, admitted causing serious injury by dangerous driving and was jailed for 18 months and given a three-year driving ban.
