Watch a driver smash into the opened door of a parked car

Video captured in Edinburgh shows the shocking moment a driver smashed into the open door of a parked car.

Played at full speed the incident, which occurred earlier this month, seems to happen in the blink of an eye. However, the slow motion replay gives away exactly what happened.

The silver Peugeot 3008 driving towards the car with the dashcam moves to its right to overtake a line of parked vehicles. The driver of a Volvo parked at the back of the line opens their door as the 4x4 is passing, causing it to strike the front of the moving vehicle.

The door buckles on impact, sending shattering glass into the air and ripping the Peugeot's wing mirror off.

According to reports in the Daily Mail, the Volvo driver accepted responsibility for the accident and no one was injured.
