Cars smashed as parking exit goes wrong

More CCTV footage and another candidate for the title of worst driver.

British transport police have released a 21-second video clip of a motorist smashing backwards into three vehicles in a reversing manoeuvre out of a parking space.

The video clip starts with the car, a silver Ford Escort, reversing tentatively but then it suddenly accelerates in an arc, smashing across three vehicles.

The driver fled scene and did not report the incident to police.

The incident occurred two months ago at the Olton railway station in West Midlands but police only released the footage this week after attempts to locate the driver had come to nothing.

"Unfortunately, the CCTV camera did not capture any part of the vehicle"s registration,'' investigating officer Ali Jama told the Daily Mail newspaper.
