THIS is the shocking moment a woman in her 60s is pinned tightly between two cars after she tried to stop an alleged dangerous driver.
Horrific video footage shows the poor woman being driven at before she is pinned against her vehicle in frightening scenes recorded in Barking, East London.

And when he gets to the end of the road two cars in front of him are blocked in.
He tells the driver of one of them that he has collided with his vehicle and that he wants his insurance details.
But blocked in and with nowhere to go the driver of the blue car attempts a dangerous escape – and pins a woman, believed to be the wife of the person filming, against her car.
She screams in agony as the bumper of the car crumples behind her legs.
And although the fleeing driver does reverse she ended up needing to go to hospital for her injuries.
The shocking scenes were recorded in St Awdrys Road, Barking, on January 24 at just after 9am.
One Instagram account posted the video, with the caption: “Had this sent through. Happened in Barking yesterday.
“It seems the guy filming was hit by the BMW which drove off. The Bentley was driving in convoy with the BMW and was apparently stolen.”
As the woman desperately calls the police, the man in the blue car who has hit her jumps into another car and makes his escape.
But the person filming then attempts to enter that car too – much to the derision of commenters who saw the footage.
They said the couple should have stayed away from what were clearly dangerous criminals.
Other footage circulating yesterday of the same incident showed a pair of men from the two cars eventually ramming the car of the person filming so hard they got past and escaped.
However it didn’t show the woman being driven at.
The Met Police are now appealing for information about the incident, and have not yet made any arrests.
A spokesperson said: “Police were called at 09:06hrs on Tuesday, 24 January to reports of a car rammed at St Awdrys Road, Barking.
“A passenger from the rammed vehicle, a woman aged 60s, suffered leg injuries.
“She was taken by London Ambulance Service to an East London hospital where her condition is not thought to be life threatening.
“ The suspect vehicle[s] drove away from the scene of the collision.
“ At this early stage there have been no arrests.
“Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to call 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 1580/24Jan.”
