A CRAZED motorist chased a pedestrian along the pavement in a huge 4x4 before crushing the car where the man had taken cover.

The driver of a black KIA Sorrento SUV dangerously mounted the footpath and sped after the terrified man, who jumped into a friend's waiting Astra.

In a bid to escape the Astra drove off down Whalebone Lane South, Dagenham, but the 4x4 chased it and rammed the car from behind, sending them into as row of parked cars.

The SUV then repeatedly reversed into the bronze coloured Astra, containing the terrified driver and passenger, writing the car off completely.
