Manchester United reserve Mads Timm has been sentenced to 12 months in a young offenders' institute for dangerous driving.

Danish star Timm scored for the reserves on Wednesday, but the 20-year-old now faces jail-time after being held partly responsible for a car crash that left two people injured.

Timm, along with 19-year-old Callum Flanagan, stood accused of racing each other on a 40mph road in Partington, Manchester.

Flanagan, a former Manchester United reserve, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and was handed an eight-month sentence for driving the car involved in the crash.

Timm had been in the car in front, but pleaded not-guilty - and was hit with a heavier sentence.

They were both also disqualified from driving for three years.

Flanagan lost control of his black Honda Civic on a bend and crashed with another car driven by Angela Bourne.

She suffered heel and knee injuries and a passenger in Flanagan's car, team-mate Phil Marsh, 17, had to be cut from the wreckage.
Judge Adrian Smith said: "Having heard all the evidence, it is quite clear to me this was a serious and deliberate course of dangerous driving.

"You chose to engage in game-playing in high-powered vehicles on a busy stretch of road.

"It is pure luck that nobody was killed. The result was, nevertheless, serious for Angela Bourne, who happened to be driving in the opposite direction."

Just another case of money corrupting a young head!

Hope the lad learns from his mistake.

I don't think they can complain with the sentance, they left someone crippled in the accident.

An evo8 is alot of car for a young man, the temptation to race them is just too much.

after Jimmy Davis last year, you'd think that would be a warning to these two, i am sure Timm at least must have known Davis well, absolutely thick as two planks. :rolleyes:

Timm was/is shite as a player imo.
And an absolute shit driver as well. Must be otherwise, how the FVCK can you crash an EvoVIII. That is the ultimate car in the world!

Have you ever driven an evo 8 Shaf? or any evo for that matter, they haven't really deviated from the design/spirit since the evo 5 really.

Whilst it's a fine car for safe, fast driving, all it's EBD, ABS, active yaw, 4wd and other japanese gadgetry will not save you if you drive it like a pillock. As Timm has demonstrated for us.

There are better driver's cars by the way, the evo might be big fun - but any idiot can drive one.
