Terrifying moment driver mows down group of pedestrians in London rampage – Daily Star
The Snapchat video – which was later posted to Twitter – begins with a Ford Focus driving down a road in Romford before swerving onto the pavement.
People manage to dive out of the way but the driver is not finished yet.
He turns round and hurtles down the same road before veering violently to the left into a larger group.
This time, the sound of bodies smashing onto the car’s bonnet are clear to hear as a woman screams in horror.

“He’s dead, he’s dead,” the cameraman yells as the Ford Focus driver reverses and speeds away.
Witnesses try and run after the car before the video comes to an end.
A man has been arrested for attempted murder after the incident in the early hours of Sunday, August 19, on Chandlers Way.
Romford Town Police said in a statement: “A 24-year-old male has been arrested for Attempted Murder following the circulation of a video on social media yesterday.”
It is not clear what caused the apparent attack.

The Ford Focus appeared to be damaged in the video and a Romford resident later said how she found it 10 minutes away from where the incident took place.
“I examined the cars marks and noticed the colour difference from the front and back wheel, exactly the same as the video,” Shannon Quartermaine told Sun Online.
“The car was sat with a shattered front window, dented side and the front passenger window down.”
