Disturbing footage (video below) has emerged on the popular video-sharing app, ‘TikTok’, of the moment when a driver appears to ram another motorist off of the road.
In the footage obtained by Emergency Services News, a vehicle can be seen approaching a blue Toyota Prius on the inside lane of a motorway.
The individual filming the video captioned the footage with ‘lunatics on the roadside’.
The individuals in the vehicle can be heard laughing as they slowly approach the blue Prius, which appears to be a private hire vehicle with a passenger in the rear nearside seat.
A male can then be heard shouting: “We are going, watch” before appearing to deliberately hit the nearside rear-end of the blue Prius, causing it to spin out of control.
The individuals in the car that hit the Prius can then be heard laughing as the incapacitated car is left by the roadside.
The video has been viewed nearly 60k times.
It is not known where or when the footage was recorded or if the occupants in the blue Prius were seriously injured.
As the video starts, the vehicle involved appears to be approaching a turn off for ‘BLC’N East Ham’ suggesting that the video might have been filmed on the A406 in East London
In one of the stills from the video, the individual posting the video captions it with: ‘gap challenge gone wrong’ with the hashtags ‘dangerous’ and ‘illegal’.
