SMOKING KILLS GUYS!! IT IS REAL!!!
15 Nov 2021, Havant, Hants – This is the shocking moment a woman smoking a cigarette is suddenly pinned against a street bench by an out-of-control hatchback.
Astonishing CCTV footage shows the woman’s horror as she suddenly clocks the vehicle veering towards her.
Within a second the vehicle smashes into her legs – leaving her pinned between the car, the bench and the church wall behind it.
The driver quickly manages to reverse – squeezing through a gap in the bollards barely wider than a car width.
Stunned onlookers then rush in to help the woman, who is amazingly seen moving one of her legs at the end of the video.
Paramedics say a woman in her 50s has been rushed to hospital.
Witnesses meanwhile told that the driver was an elderly woman who had been attempting a three-point turn when she lost control of the vehicle.
Police, paramedics and a team from the Isle of Wight Air Ambulance service were called in to help. The victim was rushed to hospital and another person was treated at the scene.
Luke Murphy, 27, was playing a didgeridoo outside a nearby shopping centre when he saw the car veer off the road and plough into the woman.
He said he believed the two women sitting on the bench were sisters.
Mr Murphy, who lives in Havant, told: ‘It seemed that the elderly lady driver was trying to do a three point turn but may have accidentally let the clutch off too quickly and the car shot forward.
