| Last updated
CCTV footage shows the moment an Audi driver sent a man flying after ploughing into tables outside a bar.
The incident took place outside a bar on Lark Lane, Liverpool, which is popular for its food and drink venues.
The clip, posted on Twitter by @aroundLiv, shows two people sitting outside at a table, with a large planter separating them from the road.
An Audi suddenly comes sailing down the street, at first clipping the bollards and tables behind them.
The car – which appears to be travelling at some speed – then continues to drive at an angle into the two people, crashing into the man’s chair.
Police have confirmed a 53-year-old woman has since been arrested on suspicion of drink driving and driving without due care.
The clip has since racked up one million views by shocked Twitter users, with one writing: “Imagine getting ran over whilst eating out.”
Another said: “F**king hell. Hope that guy bought a lottery ticket on his way home.”
Merseyside Police confirmed to the Liverpool Echo that officers were called to Lark Lane at around 8pm on Sunday 22 May after a report of a collision, after a white Audi drove into tables on the road outside a venue.
The force said a man suffered minor injuries that did not require hospital treatment, and that a 53-year-old woman from Liverpool was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and driving without due care.
LADbible has reached out to Merseyside Police for comment.
Recently, another viral crash prompted debate online, leaving people conflicted over which driver is in the wrong in a TikTok video.
The recording of the incident - which happened near Ockham Village in Surrey - was uploaded by TikTok account @danparkin, and shows a Mercedes whizzing along and speedily flying over a junction.
However, as it travels over the intersection, a van comes into view from the left, colliding with and clipping the back of the Mercedes, causing it to spin off to the other side of the road.
The Mercedes slows to a halt, but doesn't get out of the crash unscathed as the bottom half of its back bumper trailing behind it, barely clutching on.
Viewers have flocked to the post to weigh in on which driver is responsible for the collision.
One TikTok user said: "For the non brits, the merc is coming out of a side road, is required to stop at the line and look and the van is on the main road."
"I don't see a stop sign tho," another responded.
A final commented: "There's barely any road marking on the give way road the merc was on, could be taken to court and contested but van also hit the back side of the merc."
