THE latest episode of Crash Detectives airs tonight and will again follow Gwent Police’s crash investigation unit.

The series, which airs at 8.30pm on Tuesdays on BBC One Wales, showcases the work done by Gwent Police after a vehicle crash.

Last week, the show recounted how Jake Harris, 24, was seriously injured when he was hit by a car in Pontnewydd in Cwmbran.

The car involved was written off and driver Daniel Hawkesford, 19, was cut out by fire crews and taken to hospital.

The show followed how investigators analysed the scene of the crash and were left baffled by how the driver managed to lose control in the way he had while driving at 30mph.

He was breathalysed but was found to not be drunk at the time of the incident.

The driver said he swerved out the way of a cat, but CCTV footage showed that he was driving at high speed and lost control.

His car was travelling at 60mph after hitting the pavement but on impact of a wall lost some of that speed before hitting the pedestrian.

The driver was given a 16-month sentence suspended for 18-months and was banned from driving for three years. 

Mr Harris accepted an apology from the driver.

The show also covered a crash in Raglan, Monmouthshire.

A car and a motorbike crashed outside of a garden centre, with the 53-year-old motorcyclist receiving life-threatening injuries.

The bike crashed into the car as the car was turning out of the garden centre.

Officers confirmed the car was in first gear and was on the correct side of the road, while the bike was on the wrong side.

It was also found that the bike was travelling at 93mph on a 50mph stretch of road.

There were no prosecutions.

Tonight's episode promises to be about an incident involving a car travelling the wrong way up the M4.
