A FIRST offender crashed into a car which contained a one-year-old boy.

Dylan Monteith, 23, tried to beat a red light before colliding into another 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.

Monteith pleaded guilty today at Glasgow Sheriff Court to dangerous driving.

He also admitted possession of an extendable baton.

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

Prosecutor Jennifer McKee said: "(The other vehicle) 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 (the other) vehicle causing it to spin and come to a stop on the central reservation."

All exited their vehicles when 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.

Michael Poggi, defending, will make his plea in mitigation at next month's sentencing.

Sheriff Matthew Jackson QC continued the bail of Monteith, from Pollok, meantime.
