However, instead of stepping on the brake, Xie said he slammed his foot on the accelerator, careering towards the mum and her young daughter who are walking on the pavement.
Fortunately, the mother, surnamed Xia, is alert to the danger and can be seen shoving her daughter out the way before Xie crashes to a stop into the back of a parked car.
