Bystanders Attempt to Stop Rolling, Flaming Car in Walthamstow, London

Bystanders at the intersection of Church Hill and Hoe St in Walthamstow, London, attempted on September 12 to stop a runaway car that caught fire and began rolling down the street after the driver escaped.

Ebru Ozz, who filmed these videos, said she was walking home from work when she saw the vehicle and the “shaken” driver: “She left the hand break [sic] on which resulted in the car moving off. People were trying to obstruct the car from moving but it all happened within seconds so not sure what had caused the car to flame up. Emergency services were at the scene within minutes but as far as I know the driver is fine and no one was injured.” Credit: Ebru Ozz via Storyful
