A DRIVER who crashed into the back of a woman's car tried to run her over after she insisted they swap insurance details, Barking Court heard.

Mohammed Uddin, 24, allegedly became enraged and drove at the terrified woman twice after the pair collided along the A13 in Dagenham.

She had asked for his insurance details but Uddin kept shouting "just leave it" at her, magistrates were told.

He then took her keys, handbag and mobile phone out of her car and climbed into his Mercedes A Class, the prosecution said.

Uddin allegedly sped towards the woman but crashed into some bollards, it was said he then manoeuvred the car around for another attempt.

The woman ran away down the A13.

Police arrested Uddin on August 20 last year on suspicion of theft and he was later charged with this offence.

At Barking Court last week Uddin, of Westbury Road, Upton Park, did not indicate a plea.

Magistrates declined jurisdiction of the case due to the alleged aggravating features and sent the matter to Snaresbrook Crown Court.

Uddin was released on unconditional bail but must return to Barking Court for a committal hearing on March 16.
