A motorcyclist was hospitalised and several cars were badly damaged when a Land Rover driver left a trail of destruction through a leafy Surrey town.
Shocking scenes captured in Godalming on Friday night showed a shirtless man driving a blue Land Rover into several other vehicles before causing a sickening collision with the teenage motorcyclist.
The biker, who was driving down the A3100 main road, had no chance of avoiding the Land Rover as it was driven out of a side road without stopping. The teen smashed into the driver’s side front wheel and somersaulted over the bonnet into the road, lying motionless as the Land Rover reversed and drove away.
The carnage unfolded outside the Leathern Bottle pub in the town with frantic locals shouting at the driver to stop and get out of the car during what they called a ‘rampage’.

In a 90-second clip shared widely on social media, the Land Rover is seen hurtling over grass verges with no lights on, and colliding with a stationery car. The driver then performs a u-turn in the middle of a junction and lines the Land Rover up, driving back off the road onto the verge at speed.

The Land Rover turns around in a car park behind the pub and smashes back in to the convertible as he returns, pushing it off the road.
It then heads straight out of the side road and collides with the motorbike, before the incident ends as he lurches the now badly damaged 4×4 a few more yards and hits the side of a Vauxhall Vivaro van.
The shirtless driver emerges from the Land Rover – which has learners’ L-Plates on it – and tells onlookers ‘my steering lock’s broke’ before grabbing items from the boot.

Onlookers shouted ‘call the police’ but no emergency services had arrived by the time the video ended and it was unclear if any arrests were made.
MailOnline has contacted Surrey Police for information.
A nurse who was at the Leathern Bottle pub tended to the injured biker – described online as a 17-year-old boy – until paramedics arrived. He was rushed to hospital but in an update posted on behalf of his family on a local Facebook page, was released and suffered no major injuries.
The statement read: ‘We wish to thank all those involved in the care of our son after he was involved in the RTA on Friday.
‘We would like to thank the Fire Service for their care, Elaine and the staff at The Leathern Bottle. The wonderful nurse (did not get a name) who stayed with our son until the paramedic arrived. Godalming Naval club and all those who were there to support.
‘Our son is ok, he has been extremely lucky.
‘THANK YOU doesn’t seem enough but it seems that is all we can say.’
