A youtuber's posted a video of angry shoppers trying to stop an alleged hit-n-run driver escaping from a Tesco's in Hertfordshire.

One person's been badly hurt after the Citroen C3 was in collision with several people in Rickmansworth on Sunday afternoon.

The video shows people surrounding the car - some bashing trolleys in it to try to stop the driver after a reported theft of alcohol inside the store


Hertfordshire Police say they were called at 157pm on Sunday (23rd Dec) to a report of a car being in collision with several people outside the Tesco store in Harefield Road, Rickmansworth.

The ambulance service also attended the incident - one person's been badly hurt and a second person suffered slight injuries and was also taken to hospital.

The blue Citroen C3, a hire car with a registration of KW18 HGK left the scene.

The video shows furious shoppers in the car-park attempting the stop the driver, bashing into the side of it with trolleys and thumping on the window to try to get the car to stop.

The car's rear window was smashed during the incident and a woman in the passenger seat is seen hiding her face.

It’s believed the driver and passenger were involved in an incident inside the store moments before the collision, where a person was challenged by the store’s security after attempting to steal alcohol.

Officers are continuing to work to locate the vehicle and its occupants.

In the video, the car is then seen smashing into other cars in its attempt to leave the car-park.

Hertfordshire Police say anyone who witnessed the incident and has yet to speak with police, or saw the car before or after the incident, should contact PC David Johnson from the Road Policing Unit via the non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 397 of December 23.
