Shocking dashcam footage has emerged of a young woman slamming a car into her ex-boyfriend and a young girl he was with at a bus stop in an "uncontrollable rage".

Lydia Baya, 18, has now been jailed for six years for the horrendous attack that left a woman with a broken pelvis and three others with minor injuries.

She took her mother's car after an argument with her ex, 19, and drove the car at him and a 16-year-old girl in Selly Park, Birmingham, according to West Midlands Police.

Dashcam footage taken from an approaching bus shows a Renault Captur steering off and ramming into the pair at about 1pm on August 14 last year.

Baya crashes the car into a bus stop and injures two more people.

Horrified passengers from the bus and other passers-by rushed to help the victims, who all had to be treated in hospital.

She abandoned the car on the pavement and was arrested later.

A 58-year-old woman suffered a shattered pelvis and is left in fear of going outside her own home, said the police.

A 45-year-old woman was also injured, along with Baya’s ex-boyfriend and the 16-year-old girl. All have now recovered from their injuries.

DC Andy Jones, from West Midlands Police’s Public Protection Unit, said: "The consequences of Baya’s uncontrollable rage that day were catastrophic.

"It is by pure chance that the victims’ injuries were not more serious or even fatal."

Baya, from Dudley, who was initially arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, pleaded guilty in Wolverhampton Crown Court to two counts of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm and one count of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

She was jailed to three and a half years for attempting to cause grievous bodily harm and two and a half years for causing serious injury by dangerous driving to run concurrently.

Baya will be banned from driving for 12 months on her release and will be required to take an extended test before being allowed behind the wheel again.
