Amazingly no one was injured in the shocking smash which happened on Armthorpe Road near Doncaster Royal Infirmary shortly before noon on Friday (July 12).

The footage – which was filmed from the front local man Paul Tompkins’ house – shows the car coming down Armthorpe Road on its roof before hitting parked cars.

It also narrowly misses a care travelling in the same direction which appears to have children in the rear seats.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “We were called at around 11:30am today to reports of a road traffic collision on Armthorpe Road, Doncaster.

One vehicle ended up on its roof.

“Two cars are reported to have collided, causing one of the cars to crash into a number of parked vehicles and flip onto its roof.
