Car almost hits people - level 3
Police have released this CCTV footage showing the moment a car crashes into a college in Manchester, narrowly missing two pedestrians.
Two people can be seen strolling along a pathway when the car smashes through some railings.
In the early evening of the 9th of August, a grey mini was travelling along a main road towards Rochdale, when the driver lost control at a junction.
The car crossed the central reservation and collided with some railings, before ploughing into the college.
The two pedestrians had a lucky escape and can be seen looking on in shock.
The driver, a 21-year-old man, suffered head injuries, was taken to hospital for treatment and is currently in a stable condition.
Manchester Police have now launched an investigation and are particularly keen to speak to the two witnesses walking on the pavement.
Difficult words: CCTV footage (security camera video), pedestrian (somebody who’s walking), stroll (walk), smash (break), junction (place where two or more roads meet), plough (move fast), lucky escape (situation when you escape danger narrowly), keen (very interested), witness (to see something happen) witnesses.
