Horrific moment car veers off road and SLAMS into woman smoking cigarette on bench – wedging her against the wood as its wheels continue to spin

This is the shocking moment a woman smoking a cigarette is suddenly pinned against a street bench by an out-of-control hatchback.

Astonishing CCTV footage shows the woman’s horror as she suddenly clocks the vehicle veering towards towards her.

Within a second the vehicle smashes into her legs – leaving her pinned between the car, the bench and the church wall behind it.

The driver quickly manages to reverse – squeezing through a gap in the bollards barely wider than a car width.

Stunned onlookers then rush in to help the woman, who is amazingly seen moving one of her legs at the end of the video. 

Paramedics say a woman in her 50s has been rushed to hospital.
