A shocking video has been shared online that appears to show a driver deliberately crashing into the side of another car and laughing as they get away.

In the concerning piece of footage, the perpetrator can be seen lining up by the left hand side of another vehicle, before ramming into the back corner, sending it spinning out of control on a dual carriageway in London.

Both the driver and the passenger can then be heard laughing as they make off.

According to reports, the incident happened on the A13 near Beckton, Newham, in the east end of the capital city. Miraculously, the victim seems to veer away from any oncoming traffic and avoid a much larger crash.

The disturbing video was posted on Twitter, with the caption: "What are the police doing about this?"

It's not clear when the video was filmed, or whether the people involved in the crash know each other.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, the Metropolitan Police confirmed that the footage had not been reported to them.

However, they have now urged anyone who may know anything about it to come forward with information.

A spokesperson for the force said: "We recommend the footage be reported to police via @MetCC or via the online portal https://www.met.police.uk/dashcam."

The driver, who was in a Citreon Saxo, was driving on the A50 in Derby when he took his eyes off the road - it's reported he was trying to catch a rogue spider, before accidentally ploughing straight into a car that was in a lay-by.

Police posted the photo of the cars, both of which were completely wrecked. The stationary car also had someone sat in it, with both drivers suffering minor injuries.

Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit tweeted: "A50 Westbound on Sunday. No doubt some of you got caught up in the tailbacks from this collision.

"Silver car driver trying to catch a spider whilst driving collides with red car in lay-by. Minor injuries. Reported for driving without due care and attention."

Of course, social media users jumped right on it, with one replying: "Hope the spider was OK?"

Another person wrote: "That's a terrible shame. I hate spiders too. This is a big fear of mine when driving. Glad everyone is OK. I pity the arachnophobe."
