The car careers across the forecourt

The car careers across the inside lane at high speed before swerving towards a set of pumps being used by a police car.

Somehow, the speeding car manages to swerve between the two pumps, hitting the side of one of them but missing the attendant and one of the officers by a fraction.

It is not clear how much damage was caused by the smash.

The car clips one of the fuel pumps before coming to a halt

The red car apparently comes to a halt out of the picture after smashing sideways into a wall.

It is not clear what happened to the driver after the incident.
