A driver was jailed after his own dash cam caught him doing 100mph down a country lane after a road rage incident.
It showed Graham York, 44, angrily demanding the driver of a Volkswagen Golf he was following in his Hyundai Tucson to pull over.
He then accelerated along the single carriageway B1167 French Drove, near Wisbech and tried to overtake the Golf on a bend.
But he lost control, cleared a roadside ditch and ploughed into a field.
Police calculated that just before the bend York had been travelling at 104mph.

The officers also discovered York, of Backgate, Cowbit, had his driving licence revoked three years ago for medical reasons.
York was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison for dangerous driving and disqualified for four years by Peterborough Crown Court.
Det Con Tom Nuttall, who investigated, said: "York's driving was dangerous and the consequences could have been a lot worse. He was clearly angry and not paying attention to the speed he was doing as he approached the sharp left bend.
"York is clearly not safe behind the wheel of a car and I hope this sentence will protect the public in future."
