THIS is the ridiculous moment a man falls onto a car in slow motion in an apparent “crash for cash” scam.
The footage was captured by two pals on their way to work in Sutton-in-Ashfield, as they saw him hurl himself onto their car.
He can be seen stumbling in the road at about 6am on November 1, before falling onto the bonnet and sliding slowly to the floor.
Two security guards then appeared and dragged the man out of the road.
The pair in the car are left more surprised when the guards gesture to them to keep moving.
The driver, a computer technician, 49: “I was driving along and I saw the car ahead put on the brakes so I slowed down, but I came to a stop when I saw him in the road – I thought he was drunk.
“He put his hands on the bonnet and then slowly fell to the floor.
“I was about to reverse and full beam him but then two security guards came along and started dragging him out the road.
“It was definitely an attempt to get some compensation, he was trying some sort of scam but he didn’t do it very well.”
He said: “We just sat there in shock and wondered if he could be one of the patients from the hospital.
“It was quite funny at first because it was so ridiculous but when I got to work I watched the footage and I realised it could have been a lot worse.
“He could have started smashing up my car or anything.”
Crash for cash scams cost £340million a year – risking innocent drivers’ lives and pumping up insurance premiums.
Scammers cause accidents to make fake insurance claims for car damage and whiplash injuries.
