A FIRST offender who crashed into a car which contained a one-year-old boy has been tagged.

Dylan Monteith, 23, tried to beat a red light before colliding into George Johnston and Jana Kaniewski's vehicle, causing it to spin in Glasgow's Pollok on April 7, 2020.

Both vehicles were left damaged but fortunately all involved escaped unhurt including the young boy.

Today, Monteith pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to dangerous driving.

He also admitted possession of an extendable baton.

Sheriff Matthew Jackson QC ordered Monteith - of Pollok - to undertake 200 hours of unpaid work and tagged him for three months, keeping him indoors between 7pm and 7am.

The court heard Monteith was behind the wheel of a Toyota Aygo.

Prosecutor Jennifer McKee said: "Ms Kaniewski and Mr Johnson had their one-year-old son as a passenger in their vehicle.

"Monteith exited Priesthill Road at speed and failed to comply with a red light.

"He crossed the reservation in place, collided with Mr Johnston's vehicle causing it to spin and come to a stop on the central reservation."

All exited their vehicles, to which Monteith approached to say: "I'm sorry, I had to burst that red light."

A 999 call was made and fortunately there were no injuries.

Monteith's vehicle was found to have damage to the front while the other car had front and offside damage.

Monteith's vehicle was also searched and the extendable baton was found before he was arrested.
