Watch as ‘drink-driving’ Land Rover driver ploughs into four parked cars before ploughing into metal fence as he leaves behind trail of destruction during 40-second rampage
- An accused drink driver crashing into four cars, a metal fence and a traffic light
- CCTV footage shows a £57k Land Rover Discovery leaving a trail of carnage
This is the moment a man accused of drink driving left a trail of destruction as he dragged his £57,000 Land Rover Discovery along a row of four parked cars.
The footage shows the motorist slamming into the side of one car after another before mounting the pavement and ploughing into a metal fence and traffic light.
Another video, filmed from a car driving past the scene, shows people recording the carnage and laughing as they joke: ‘You can’t park there mate’.
The Land Rover is seen reduced to scrap after the 40 second rampage in Leeds, West Yorkshire, shortly after midnight on Sunday.
In the footage, the car is seen to drift off the road into the parking bays at the side of the street.

It slams into the first car and then crunches into the second one, and then a third, and a fourth as the people filming it howl in disbelief.
The second video shows the white Land Rover mounted on a metal fence with its door left open.
A traffic light was hit by the vehicle and is leaning against a bush, but it still appears to be working and showing a green light.
West Yorkshire Police said: ‘At 12.12am on Sunday, police were called to a road traffic collision in Park Road, Guiseley, where a Land Rover Discovery had been involved in a collision with four parked cars and a set of traffic lights.
‘A man in his 30s was subsequently arrested on suspicion of drink driving. He has been charged with driving while over the prescribed limit of alcohol and bailed to appear at Leeds Magistrates Court in April.’
