Unattended car rolls down driveway with child inside

Updated: 

This is the shocking moment a driver forgot to put their handbrake on, causing her car to roll down the driveway while children were inside.

Video footage shows the grey Ford Kuga parked up on a driveway. A woman can be seen getting out of the driver's seat to run inside, without realising she has left the handbrake off.


The car slowly starts to roll forward towards the road, prompting the young girl in the back seat to open the door and scream for the woman to return and stop the car from crashing out on to the busy road.

Luckily, the driver manages to return to the car in time and is able to bring it to a stop before the situation escalates any further. No doubt the little girl in the back seat would have got the fright of a lifetime.
