In the video filmed on March 15 in Blackburn, Lancs., a crowd of men can be seen surrounding a white Audi outside restaurant Dahna Lounge.
Over the noise of the crowd, a revving engine can be heard getting closer.
Suddenly out of the left-hand side of the screen a car speeds around the corner.
Some of the men see the vehicle in time and manage to get out of its way but others are hit and get thrown into the air.
The sound of the impact echoes over the sound of the wheel’s screeching.
One person hits a nearby wall before falling to the ground, as the driver speeds off.
Another body can be seen lying on the ground beside him.
It is not clear what happened before the cameras started rolling to spark the incident.
Police have since confirmed that officers attended the scene after a disorder took place between a number of men – with some being armed with weapons including bats and crowbars.
Several people were injured in the incident including three men aged between 20 and 29 who received hospital treatment for broken bones, internal injuries and some other minor injuries.
Police later seized two Audi vehicles and four men aged between 20 and 25 from Bolton and Blackburn were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.
A fifth man, aged 24, from Bolton was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
All have been released on bail until April 13 while officers conduct further enquiries.
Detective Inspector Nikki Bithell, of Lancashire Police, said: “The motive for this disorder is unknown at this stage. Officers are reviewing a significant amount of CCTV footage in order to determine a full understanding of what happened.
“This was a serious incident with significant violence evidenced at the scene by in excess of 15 to 20 people. It is a miracle there were no fatalities as a result of this disorder.
“The police still have a number of people to speak to and it is anticipated that further arrests will be made in due course.”
