Idiot motorist drives car into path of disbelieving marathon runners

Astonishing moment motorist brazenly drives her car into the path of disbelieving half marathon runners after ignoring road restrictions

  • Shocking footage shows a woman knocking down cones and driving into a race
  • The driver almost injures a man as she drives straight into the path of  Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon – despite the fact the route is closed today for the race
  • She protests she doesn’t know where to go and there are ‘no signs’ while runners swear at her and tell her to move 

This is the shocking moment a woman defies road restrictions and brazenly drives her car into the path of dismayed runners attempting to complete a half marahon.

The driver was caught on camera in Plymouth, Devon, knocking over a cone and almost injuring runners as they attempt to block the vehicle ploughing into participants in the city’s half marathon.

The woman turns right and heads down the street despite the fact the route is shut for the race and blocked by traffic cones.

A man tries to stop the driver with a cone then attempts to get in her car on the passenger side to stop her driving any further.

She continues driving and stubbornly tells others  ‘I’m going very slowly.’

There’s no indication the woman wanted to cause any harm and goes on to explain she’s attempting to get out of the city to work, not knowing which way to go.

But people around screech and swear at the woman in the hope she’ll come to her senses and stop immediately – with one runner yelling she could have killed someone.  

One asks ‘Are you f******* stupid?’ as another says ‘I’m a police officer you’re breaking the law’.

More runners pile in and say ‘The road is closed, you’re just going to have to wait; and another adds ‘don’t be so stupid, you’re going to kill someone.’  

The woman then replies: ‘I can’t get out…listen, I have tried to get out every which way. I have a workshop in Okehampton. I have had no information…I went very slowly.’

A Plymouth City council Highways official then races over, telling the driver; ‘don’t move, stay there’ to which she replies, ‘You phone the workshop (to tell them I’ll be late).’
