Offbeat Video

This shocking dash cam footage shows the moment a driver swerved to avoid a roundabout crash – but ended up losing control and ploughing through a hedge into a window, narrowly missing pedestrians.

The footage shows two cars approaching the busy mini roundabout. A light blue car is forced to swerve as a darker blue car pulls out in front of it.

The dark blue car comes to a complete standstill, probably assuming they’d had a lucky near miss. Meanwhile the light blue careers around the island and goes out of view

Within seconds the light blue car comes back into the frame and mounts the pavement.

It ploughs through a hedge narrowly missing a postbox and several pedestrians before dramatically crashing into a window.
