Car mounts a kerb and mows down a man

This is the shocking moment a car mounted the curb and mowed down a man trying to run away - sending him flying through the air. The worrying dash cam video footage shows two young men running down a pavement - closely tailed by a white car which appears to mount the kerb.The car strikes the man - flipping him up in the air - before he skids along the road while the vehicle speeds off.Miraculously, the stuck man scrambles to his feet, pulls up his tracksuit bottoms, and runs off out of shot, apparently uninjured. Eye-witness Richard Smith captured the "shocking" moment on a dash cam while driving along Swanswell Street, in Coventry, at around 1.45pm on Tuesday (28).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."We heard the bang from inside my car.

I thought he would be seriously hurt and it wasn't nice to see."I have no idea how he managed to get back up and carry on running."Richard captured the dash cam footage after picking up his niece from college.West Midlands Police has been contacted for comment.
