POLICE are hunting down a reckless motorist who left a trail of destruction in his path after crashing into multiple vehicles before fleeing the scene.

Footage of the shocking scene was captured by a nearby bystander, who wishes to remain anonymous, as the events unfolded in Bordesley Green in Birmingham on Tuesday.

The person who shot the video originally pulled out his phone to record after witnessing a driver of a white van collide with another vehicle at a junction.

Footage then shows the white van driver fleeing the scene by cutting across the busy junction while the front of the van can be seen badly smashed.

In the video the camera man is heard saying: “He has crashed into someone else! No way!”

A black Audi can be seen sitting in the middle of the road badly smashed after the white van again caused a collision.
