This is the moment an out-of-control saloon car mows down a group of scooters and a pedestrian after being rear-ended and pushed into a crossroads by an SUV.

The accident, which has resulted in six injuries, was captured by a traffic camera and dashcam on Taikang Road in Nankang District, which is in Ganzhou City in Jiangxi Province in East China.
