The video clip from another driver’s car shows the Seat travelling in the left-hand lane of the A38 at Forder’s Valley, Devon.
Suddenly the black car darts into the middle lane, hitting the white Ford.
The impact sends the Seat shooting in the other direction, visibly damaged.
It then drives on towards a nearby roundabout in Forder Valley, Plymouth Devon. The driver was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence
But seconds later it comes back into view and rams the same white car another two times.
The driver who captured the shocking incident with his dash cam said: ‘I was driving home after a day in town and a black car smashed into this one white car on my way home outside Sainsbury’s.
‘It was very scary because he kept ramming the car. He was also shouting something’.
Another person who drove past the collision said: ‘A huge crash on the marsh mills roundabout I’ve just drove past, looks like it’s gonna be there a while as cars are smashed up badly, looks like a few cars involved too.’
