Shocking footage of a man being thrown 15 feet up into the air after he was deliberately run over by a hit and run drive has been released by detectives.
Officers are treating the horrific incident as attempted murder after the 30-year-old victim was driven at intentionally and knocked through the air.
The man landed up to 15 feet from the point of impact and the car was then driven around the car park again before a second attempt was made to drive over the victim.
He suffered from a broken pelvis and serious leg injuries and currently remains in a stable condition at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.
Norfolk Police have released the clear footage of the incident which happened in the Vicarage Car Park in North Walham in Norfolk at 12.55am Saturday 23 July.
The victim was walking through the car park with two friends when a small, dark coloured car, believed to be a blue Peugeot 307, was driven at him intentionally.
One of the friends managed to run out of the way and another threw an object at the car after the victim has been knocked to the ground.
Following the incident the car made off from the car park at speed towards Bacton Road and it is believed there were up to three other people in the car.
Detective Chief Inspector Stu Armes said: “The footage we have released today is shocking and I appreciate some people could find it distressing.
“However it reflects the seriousness of the incident and how it could have had potentially fatal consequences for the victim.
“The victim has suffered serious injuries and has been left extremely distressed by his ordeal.
“Whilst the motivation for the incident remains unclear, we are treating it as attempted murder and at this time we believe it is an isolated incident.
“We are appealing to the public to assist us with our investigation. We have made a number of enquiries so far; however, we are keen to locate the car involved in this collision and would appeal for anyone who may know of its whereabouts to contact police.
“We are also appealing for help to identify the driver of the car or the passengers who were in the vehicle at the time of the incident.
“It is believed there could have been up to three other people in the car at the time, one of them a female.
“I would encourage anyone with information, however small, to contact police immediately.”
