M6 “maniac” causes “life & death havoc”
CCTV shows the red van swerving between lanes, hitting a van, before spinning out of control and ending up at 90 degrees to oncoming traffic between junctions five and six.
Hayow, of no fixed address, admitted dangerous driving, failing to provide specimen and obstructing a PC.
He will be sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court on 13 August.
Sgt Mitch Darby, from the Central Motorway Police Group, said:
“This is a really bad case of dangerous driving. At no point did Hayow make any attempt to contact with the emergency services to report the collisions, check on the other drivers or report the fact the his van was stationary in a live lane of traffic with vehicles driving towards it.
“He showed a total disregard for the safety of other motorists who were on the M6, and it is only down to pure luck that no-one was seriously injured or killed because of his driving.”
