Shocking moment car ‘chasing two men’ mounts kerb and mows down one of them then speeds off after the other in brutal daylight hit-and-run
- The footage was taken in Coventry and shows a car seemingly chasing two men
- One escapes but the other is crashed into, flipping horrifically through the air
- Despite the sickening collision, the man jumps to his feet quickly and jogs away
This is the shocking moment a car mounted the kerb and appeared to deliberately mow down a man trying to run away – sending him flying through the air.
The dashcam video footage, taken on a street in Coventry, West Midlands shows two young men running down a road – closely tailed by a white car.
The car then mounts the kerb and smashes into the man, flipping him over, before speeding off in the direction of the other man.
Despite the horrific collision, the injured man quickly jumps to his feet, pulling up his tracksuit bottoms before running off.
Richard Smith captured the footage on a dash cam while driving along the road at around 1.45pm on Tuesday.
The 46-year-old said the car involved vanished into the distance and the man who was hit ran into a nearby building.
He said: ‘He seemed like he was running away from the car. It looked like the car was chasing after him down the street.
‘The car went onto the pavement and hit him. He went flying into the air.
‘We were shocked – very shocked. I have never seen anything like it in my life.
