Shocking Dashcam Footage Shows Moment Car Appears To Ram Another Vehicle

If you're a driver the chances are you've experienced a near miss at some stage, y'know the one when someone looks like they're going to move over into your lane. There's a lot of panic but hopefully that's the end of it, you can grumble your way to where ever you're going and hopefully the other driver will check their mirrors and blind spots in future.

Well, this shocking dashcam footage shows something a little different because what initially looked like it could have been an accident turned into a car appearing to repeatedly ram another vehicle.

In the video, a black car - believed to be a Seat - can be seen accelerating in the left-hand lane before weaving and ramming into a white Ford.

The Seat, seemingly damaged from the collision, comes to a rest at the side of the road and the Ford follows.

We were unsure whether it was a complete lack of awareness on the black car's part or whether this was done with purpose.

But shortly after, our suspicions were confirmed, as the Seat began to move again and perform a quick turn before ramming the Ford twice more.

Several vehicles were said to be involved in the incident in Plymouth, Devon, which occurred just before 11am on Sunday, 29 April.

Jay Cleave captured the shocking moment that the car appeared to collide with another on three separate occasions, before continuing onto a roundabout.

One person who drove past the collision said: "A huge crash on the marsh mills roundabout I've just drove past, looks like it's gonna be there a while as cars are smashed up badly, looks like a few cars involved too."

Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed that the road had to be closed due to an incident, with a spokesperson saying: "The road was cleared at 12.40pm. There is a police investigation pending."

The spokesperson added that the driver had been taken to hospital and that there may have been some suggestion he suffered a medical episode.

However, The Mirror reported that a 21-year-old man from Plymouth was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit through drink or drugs, possession of a bladed article and criminal damage.

He was taken to hospital to be checked over before being transferred into police custody where he remains at this time.
