AN IPSWICH thief who escaped from the wreckage of a stolen car which crashed into a the side of a house has appeared in court.
Jason Blease, of Dandalan Close, was a passenger in a stolen blue mini which was driven dangerously along Wherstead Road.
The mini was seen on the wrong side of the road and being driven the wrong way round a roundabout, before it crashed into a house.
Sinni Cooksley, prosecuting at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court, said mechanics had been working on the car in Foxhall Road last May when it was stolen.
Witnesses saw three people in the car which was driven away towards the town centre "at speed".
Ms Cooksley said: "There was substantial damage caused to the house when the car crashed. This defendant climbed out of the wreckage, he suffered cuts to his face, he absconded from hospital."

Blease, 21, pleaded guilty to being carried in a stolen car. He also admitted stealing a rear parcel shelf, Pioneer speakers and a wallet totalling £145, out of a Vauxhall Astra parked in Downside Close last October.
Blease's offending continued into February this year and he pleaded guilty to stealing a mobile telephone when he was drunk.
