North Yorkshire Police said they were “totally took by surprise” by the rammed and uninsured vehicle that they spotted in Malton, North Yorkshire last week.
A total of nine people were found crammed inside the red vehicle, including five in the back seat and two in the boot.
Upon closer inspection the police discovered that two of the vehicle’s doors couldn’t open.
Two of the motor’s front tyres were also found to be so worn down that the inner cord was exposed.
North Yorkshire Police seized the vehicle and reported the driver for dangerous driving and having no insurance.
The shocking video shows a police officer in a blue jacket approaching the car and asking the passengers to exit the vehicle.
Five passengers then exit from the rear left door before one passenger opens the boot, allowing two other fully grown adults to climb out.
North Yorkshire Police posted the shocking footage to Facebook yesterday, writing: “We always expect the unexpected when we stop a vehicle…
“But this one took us totally by surprise.
“NINE people in an uninsured, unroadworthy Skoda Octavia.
“If it had been involved in a collision, the consequences don’t bear thinking about. It would have caused utter carnage.
