Shocking footage has emerged of the moments after a Mercedes ploughed into five people, believed to be Romanian car wash workers, in a south London street.

The car left the road near Catford Bus Garage in Bellingham at 8:20am this morning and crashed into a group of people at a car wash. Witnesses said the driver’s actions appeared to be deliberate.

Onlookers said a blood-covered man chased the driver down the street shouting ‘f*** you’ and ‘why have you done this?’ before police arrived.

One of the victims, a 25-year-old man, remains in a critical condition while two others, a 35-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man, are described as ‘serious but stable’. 

A video of the aftermath of the incident shows members of the public rushing to help those mown down by the car.
