A VICTIM of a terrifying hit and run attack which saw a car repeatedly drive into people on the street has spoken about the traumatic incident.

Jordan March, 22, from Bournemouth said she thought the driver was going to run her down just moments after she was knocked to the ground.

The incident, likened to something out of the video game Grand Theft Auto, took place in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Witnesses describe seeing a grey BMW estate smashing into pedestrians on Poole Hill with two people, Jordan, and a 51-year-old man from Bournemouth both taken to hospital.

“It was like something out of a film. I was sat having some food and the next thing some psycho is driving around trying to hurt everyone”, she told the Daily Echo.

Jordan said she was sat on the pavement opposite DYMK club with a friend having some food and waiting for a lift home.

A fight was taking place on the opposite side of the road so Jordan started to film it on her phone.

“There was a bit of pushing and shoving before a BMW came flying round the corner and straight into the sign and a group of people who were standing there.

“His intention was to run them over. He then reversed up and people ran over and banged on the window to try and get him to stop.

“In half a second it had turned into carnage. There were people just running around screaming.

“People were trying to break the window but he was just going backwards and forwards.

“He would run into people and then turn around and come back.”

She added: “I had stepped across the pavement and I tried to get his number plate but he then swung the car round so it was facing us.

“The next thing I know is a guy stood in front of me was hit and thrown into me.

“All I remember was jumping in the air to try and avoid the car and then I was on the floor.

“There was blood everywhere and I just remember thinking that everything hurts.

“I remember when he hit me that he reversed back and I thought he was going to come back and run me over.

“It was petrifying.”

After more than 24 hours in hospital Jordan is now back at home being looked after by friends.

“Thankfully nothing is broken but I have pulled all the ligaments in my back as I twisted when I was hit”, she added.

“The doctors said I am really, really lucky as I could have had internal bleeding.

“Mentally I feel exhausted. Everyone keeps saying to try and sleep but every time I close my eyes there is an image in my head and I see the headlights of the car.

“I keep having these flashbacks that he will run me over.

“I just want him caught now.”

 

Police seek witnesses

Police say no arrests have yet been made in relation to the incident. They are asking witnesses with video footage to contact them.

The car was found abandoned on the East Overcliff shortly after the incident.

The offender is described as white, in his late twenties, about five feet six inches tall and of stocky build. He has short dark hair and wore dark clothing. Anyone with any information should phone 101 quoting incident number 24:83.

The OHEC is always one step ahead of the game, 'you know it is', to quote one of its more illustrious commenters.
You will have to keep a spring in your step if you want to keep up, Lord Spring, because I hear a rumour that the OHEC is going to break with their tradition, and print some news today.

I can't believe it! I had a similar experience (but yo a lesser extent) on Sunday at the mini roundabout at the top of Wellington Road by Cemetery Junction. It was around 7pm and I was coming onto the roundabout from Wellington road when a red car came speeding toward the roundabout from cemetery junction. There were 4 men (boys) in the can swearing at people waiting at the bus stop. The driver didn't stop at the roundabout he just kept going and almost hit us. The passenger's were swearing and laughing at me. I slowed my car to 20 mph and pulled over as they passed us they continued with their finger gestures and swearing. I was obviously livid as i watched the car speed down Charminster high street. So Is this behavior some kind of new fad or extreme game???? I honestly do hope that the boys in the car that harassed me on Sunday have a crash and maybe they will understand what they are doing. The only problem is there is always and innocent bystander or road user who gets hurt because of someone else's stupidity.

The employment status of those involved and the time of day are in my opinion largely irrelevant. No-one deserves to have a car driven into them on purpose, let alone several times.

I believe it is everyone's right to go out and have fun (within the boundaries of the law) and not expect to be hit by a car! The driver of the car was a stranger, still unidentified and he was not being 'wound up' by either of the people he hospitalised! Unless you were there you have no right to make these statements or judge!

To Mr Pitiful and HRH of Boscombe
The use of OHEC is to mimic and emphasize the basic spelling and grammar mistakes that Echo reporters so frequently make on this site.
If other commenters prefer, I suppose I could highlight this aspect by beginning my comments, where appropriate, with the words ' oh, goodness me, chaps and chapesses at the Echo, you have made another blatant error'. I do, however, feel that this would be even more tiresome than the shortened OHEC reference to try and make the point.

First of all OPHILUM... Don't call my friend an idiot. You have no idea what went on as you weren't there. She was actually out supporting her friend's gig, and it was bank holiday weekend. What the hell has her not sitting at a table got anything to do with it. She was filming it as evidence and tried to get the guy's number plate.

Because most people who comment have probably got nothing better to do with their lives.

Slightly off topic away from the article but why do some people who coment on here insist on calling this paper the "OHEC". Apart from it being an anagram of ECHO, I'm not getiing it at all.

A bit silly if you ask me.

Anyway, I'm glad this lass is ok. She had 2 dangerous situations that night - she ate something from one of the takeaways near the Triangle & then got hit by a BMW.

I also hope the nutjob in the car gets caught. Lucky nobody was killed.
To Mr Pitiful and HRH of Boscombe
The use of OHEC is to mimic and emphasize the basic spelling and grammar mistakes that Echo reporters so frequently make on this site.
If other commenters prefer, I suppose I could highlight this aspect by beginning my comments, where appropriate, with the words ' oh, goodness me, chaps and chapesses at the Echo, you have made another blatant error'. I do, however, feel that this would be even more tiresome than the shortened OHEC reference to try and make the point.
To be honest, I think most other commentors would prefer you didn't bother pointing anything like this out at all. Most are capable of seeing the mistakes for ourselves thanks but we prefer to read the news for what it is instead.
The only tiresome thing is people who bother to do this and use silly childish references like "OHEC" and "sheeple".
