Terrifying moment a police car stunt goes horribly wrong when a Ford Focus balancing on two wheels crashes into a cop during a ‘driving skills demonstration’… and he somehow survives

This is the horrifying moment a police car stunt in Russia went spectacularly wrong after an officer was crushed under the wheels of a Ford Focus.

The car was driven on two wheels as a ‘demonstration of professional skills’.

A video shows helmeted officers in a plank position on the ground in a parking lot as the pirouette vehicle drove past, with the car having to clear the officer’s head.

But the Ford Focus ‘didn’t have enough speed’ and the footage shows it crashing into a police officer named Alexei, 48, as bystanders scream and gasp in horror.

The wheel appeared to hit his helmet and he became trapped under the car. The police officer was then dragged across the parking lot.

“The stunt got out of hand and the police Ford fell right on top of the police officer,” SHOT media reported.

The traffic officer suffered a broken leg, a dislocated finger and injuries to his back, according to reports of the stunt near Ivanteevka, in the Moscow region.

The injured man was rushed to hospital, but ‘his life was not in danger’.

“An accident occurred during a demonstration of professional skills at the Vocational Training Center of the State Traffic Inspectorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Moscow,” a spokesperson admitted.

The car loses control and lands on all four wheels, hitting the officer in the head and knocking him under the car.
