Dramatic CCTV footage showed the moment a speeding driver smashed a stolen Honda into a row of parked cars after a hit-and-run crash that left a woman with a broken pelvis.  

Police were called after a grey Honda Accord ploughed into a woman as she walked along the street in Birmingham last month.

In the shocking clip, the out-of-control car can be seen driving at speeding before colliding with several parked cars which crushed under the impact.

A group of pedestrians can be seen looking startled and attempting to hide behind another vehicle just metres away, including a small child.

The driver was pictured being helped from the vehicle wreckage before he fled the scene on foot along with another passenger.

The woman, in her 30s, who was mown down by the car, was taken to hospital with a broken pelvis after paramedics rushed to the scene.

West Midlands Police say she has since returned home where she continues to recover from her injuries.

The force is now appealing for anyone who recognises the driver and his passenger from the images to get in touch.

The Honda was stolen from an address in the Acocks Green area before the shocking crash happened at 2pm on March 6 and caused ‘significant damage’.

PC Lucy White, from the force’s Traffic Unit, said: ‘We are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time who might have seen what happened.

‘In particular if anyone has any dash-cam or mobile phone footage of the collision, please get in touch.’

A West Midlands Fire Service spokesman said previously: ‘We sent two fire engines to the scene, one from Solihull and the other from May Mills.

‘No-one was trapped in any vehicles but we offered assistance to make the scene safe.

‘One person, a pedestrian was injured. They received treatment at the scene before being taken to hospital.’
