This is the dramatic moment a woman was seriously injured after being crushed between two cars in a sickening road rage incident close to Buckingham Palace.

The victim is thought to have got out of her Mercedes Benz to remonstrate with another driver before being hit by the Range Rover in London last weekend.

Passengers on a nearby bus filmed the altercation, which left the 47-year-old woman wedged between the two vehicles at a busy junction at Hyde Park Corner.

As passers-by tried to comfort the victim on Sunday evening after the incident at about 8pm, one man could be seen gesturing and angrily stamping his feet.

Footage of the incident shows a driver getting into the light blue Range Rover Evoque and reversing the car away, which then released the woman.

The victim could then be seen falling down onto the road and being helped. Police are now probing whether the Range Rover may have been driven deliberately at her.

Scotland Yard said it was believed the woman had been a passenger in the black Mercedes Benz saloon and ‘became involved in a dispute’ with another driver.

Tourist Deepak Anand, 40, who was visiting London from Vancouver in Canada, was on a bus with his wife and son and witnessed the incident.

He said he saw a man trying to pull a driver out of the Range Rover, which then sped into oncoming traffic before trapping the women against the Mercedes.
