This is the moment a jealous husband rams his wife’s car and forces her to crash into a tree before chasing her male companion down the road.
The incident took place in the district of Sisli located on the European side of Istanbul in north-western Turkey and was filmed by a nearby CCTV camera.
In the footage, a silver car is seen being rammed from behind by a dark estate car reportedly being driven by the husband, identified as Levent B.
His wife, named as Dilek B., then crashes into a tree and mounts the pavement.
A male passenger gets out of the silver car and runs down the road. He is seen being chased by a man in a blue jacket, reportedly the woman’s hubby.
The husband then stops short before catching the rival and returns to his wife’s crashed car as she gingerly gets out of the passenger side.
Several onlookers rush over to help Dilek as her husband takes her by her arm and says something before running in the direction of her male companion again.
Levent returns to find his wife and he is seen dragging her across the road by her arm before several men intervene and try to separate them.
According to reports, the onlookers took the woman to a nearby shelter while the local authorities arrived on the scene and closed the road.
The crashed vehicle was removed from the pavement and Levent and Dilek were taken to the police station to give statements.
The investigation is ongoing.
