He was walking down the major shopping street following a night out with his other three friends just after 4am on Monday.

Their journey home of jokes turned into madness when they saw the black BMW “flying” down the road.

He told Sun Online: “The BMW’s speed was so crazy it looked like the fast and furious. People around us started screaming and shouting as it passed, with a police car speeding behind it.

“In a split second the car crashed straight into the Hunter shop, and before I know it I’m talking to the poor guy who said, ‘I think I’m gonna die’.”

After watching the black sports car crash into the Hunter store, the onlooker ditched his friends to make sure people in the vehicle were conscious.

Horrified at the wreckage, he filmed the scene on Snapchat, but stopped as he stumbled on the innocent pedestrian.

The witness added: “All of a sudden, I saw the poor guy lying on the floor. He looked drunk.

“His hip looked out of place and his legs were twisted. Blood was gushing out of one leg.

“I knelt beside him and he was barely conscious. He struggled to say ‘I think I’m gonna die’.

“The next minute, cops push my face and say, ‘in the nicest possible way f*** off.”
