An out-of-control driver evaded police in a terrifying high-speed chase in Great Britain, and it was all caught on tape.

The suspect, driving a stolen Mercedes, crashed through a railroad crossing just moments before a commuter train sped through.

The pursuit reached speeds of 90 miles per hour, with the 20-year-old driver overtaking car after car.

The driver later abandoned the Mercedes but police eventually caught him.

He has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison.

Authorities withheld the video evidence until the trial was over.
