Mum shouted ‘I’m f***ing reversing’ as she sent stranger flying outside Tesco

A mum shouted "can't you see I'm f***ing reversing" seconds before sending a man flying across a Tesco car park, a court heard.

Aimme Palmer, 27, now faces the prospect of prison after being found guilty of causing serious injury by dangerous driving at Birmingham Crown Court.

Victim Paramjip Malhi broke his ankle after he was sent through the air by Palmer's green Ford Fiesta at Birmingham's Hodge Hill Tesco superstore on June 8 last year, Birmingham Live reports.

Seconds before, the pair had a row because the mother-of-two nearly backed into him and said: "Can't you see I'm f***ing reversing?", Birmingham Crown Court heard.

Mr Malhi, a bus driver, recalled that he was about two feet away from the Fiesta when he saw the rear lights come on and the driver try to reverse.

Asked if he heard anyone saying anything he said: "Yes, the driver of the green Fiesta, a female. She said: 'Can't you see I'm f***ing reversing?'. I was quite surprised.

"I held my shopping bag up as if to say: 'What the hell?'. I continued walking."

The next thing he remembered was the sound of an 'engine revving and the wheel-spinning of tyres' before he was 'hit from behind'.

CCTV footage played to the jury showed the moment the Fiesta pulled out of its parking bay and hit Mr Malhi, who told the court: "I was thrown over the car into the air."

He stated he landed on his elbows and backside while the car sped off only to return a 'few minutes later'.

Mr Malhi recalled what happened next and said: "She said: 'I'm sorry I didn't mean it'. I said: 'You ran me down on purpose'. She said: 'Yes but could you not see I was reversing?'.

"I said: 'Please don't talk to me, talk to the police'. I said: 'You should know pedestrians have right of way'."

In cross-examination Mr Malhi denied he had been 'difficult' towards Palmer during the initial confrontation, or that he tried to stop her driving off.

Sharon Bailey, defending, said: "Maybe you were having a bad day, the driver irritated you by reversing. You tried to stop her.

"As you were walking away you were walking in front of her car trying to stop her from driving off. This is how she accidentally managed to hit you because you moved to the right."

Mr Malhi replied: "I understand what you are trying to say but that's not true."

He also refuted that he had said: "Are you f***ing blind? You stupid d***head. Stupid b****."

The jury took less than two hours to find Palmer guilty on Tuesday, October 4. She has a single conviction on her record for 'excess alcohol'.

Ms Bailey stated the court would be 'assisted' by a pre-sentence report and the case was adjourned for sentencing on Friday, November 4.

Judge Andrew Smith said: "You should remember all options are open to the court."
