Ms Zhou pushes Ms Ding forwards and crashes to a stop against two stopped cars leaving the female victim pinned between bumpers of the BMW and the Peugeot.
Motorcycle policeman Lai Guolin, who was the first to arrive on scene, said he found the panicking BMW owner having left the engine running and the vehicle still in the automatic drive gear despite no longer sitting inside her car.
The video shows Officer Lai organising a group of several dozen rescuers who lift both the BMW and the Peugeot off the victim, freeing her body.
Ms Ding, who suffered a broken foot and clavicle, as well as internal bleeding, is being treated at Quanzhou’s PLA 910 Hospital.
Ms Zhou, whose vehicle and driving licence has been seized as part of ongoing investigations, reportedly told police that the crash happened when she mishandled the BMW while trying to pick something up in her footwell.
