Shocking footage shows angry motorists confronting a bloodied van driver who left a half mile trail of destruction after smashing into four cars in less than three minutes.
The white van man was tracked down by members of the public after he ploughed into several vehicles in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, yesterday, April 20.
The first crash happened outside a Texaco garage where the van driver was seen fleeing the scene after smashing into a VW Polo, despite his badly damaged vehicle and leaving a bumper lying in the middle of the road.
It is not clear what caused the motorist to crash or why he fled the scene, and police say they have not yet found him.
A car passenger can be heard saying in disbelief: ‘What’s he trying to do, is he trying to get off? He’s trying to get off, he’s getting off, he’s got off. Oh my God.’
Moments later, the car filming the footage approaches another smashed up Audi while the driver exclaims: ‘He’s crashed into somebody else, no way.’
The man asks one stunned bystander: ‘Is it a white van? He just crashed into two people.’
Somebody off camera replies: ‘Yeah, I think somebody is hurt bro.’
The car then drives on just a few metres further along the road only to discover the van had yet again crashed, this time into another Audi.
The person in the car taking the mobile phone video tells the latest victim: ‘He’s just crashed into three people. I’ve got it all on camera.’

The Audi owner can be heard saying: ‘He’s run away. I’m going to call the police.’
The one minute fifty second video then cuts to footage of the suspected driver standing with blood pouring from his head outside the front door of a house.
He says ‘it’s okay’ as he holds up his hands in protest while members of the public confront him while waiting for officers to arrive.
The dramatic footage was obtained by the website Birmz Is Grime where it has been viewed over 50,000 times in under 24 hours.
One web user commented: ‘I saw this going on, I’m glad the police arrived. One crash is bad enough but how he’s managed that god only knows.’

Another added: ‘Looks like he should have gone to Specsavers. Britain’s worst driver right there.’
A third said: ‘He’s got some nerve trying to get away from four crashes, or whatever it was. Brummies won’t stand for that, no wonder they chased him down.’
Another person wrote: ‘To try and get away from the first one is cheeky, the second one is audacious but to run away from three crash scenes is just taking the mickey.’
A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said: ‘Officers were called to Hob Moor Road, Bordesley Green just before 6pm yesterday afternoon (20/4) following reports of a collision.
‘It’s understood that a van collided with three other vehicles; Two Audis and a VW Polo. Thankfully no one was seriously injured.
‘The driver abandoned the van in the middle of the road and ran off on foot. Our enquiries are ongoing.
