A car spun out of control and overturned after police tried to stop the driver on suspicion of drink driving.
And a second driver who also tried to flee traffic cops elsewhere in the county was caught and arrested.
“These two drivers tried their best to escape our road policing officers in St Neots and Thorney over the weekend”, said a police spokesperson.
“Thankfully there were no injuries but both were caught driving under the influence.”
Police continue to urge people to report drink or drug drivers on their confidential hotline 0800 032 0845.
