CCTV footage has captured the moment a Land Rover Discovery slammed into the rear end of a parked car and flipped onto its side.

The video shows the blundering driver colliding with a stationary Renault Clio in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, on Sunday.

The footage shows the black Discovery trundling down the road at a moderate speed, when it begins to stray off course and veer towards a row of parked cars on the far side of the road.

Travelling surprisingly slow for the scale of the accident, the left of the vehicle’s bonnet then slams into the back of the Clio, lifting the front front and back wheels of the Land Rover off the ground. 

Tilted at a 45 degree angle, the luxury four by four then seemingly grinded along the side and top of the Clio.

The Land Rover then crashed onto its side but not before ramming into the back of another parked car before it stopped.

Having smashed multiple windows in the crash the vehicle lay still on its side amongst shards of broken glass.

The video was shared to TikTok by a local takeaway on Monday, who wrote: ‘There might be delays coming into our store today, beware of overturned vehicles.’
