Footage from May 11 shows a silver car in Hoan Kiem in Hanoi, Vietnam, reversing down a street.  

The silver Toyota goes slowly, all of a sudden speeding up as it mounts the pavement shortly after 11am. 

The vehicle narrowly misses a pedestrian as it crashes into and knocks over three motorbikes.

The motorbikes are all sat next to a tree outside a line of shops. 

The footage seen from another angle shows how close the car was to hitting the pedestrian. 

The pedestrian, who is wearing a face covering, gloves and a checked shirt is walking down the street when the car starts accelerating towards her. 

She stayed calm, lifting one of her arms up to get it out of the way of the moving vehicle.

The car crashes into three motorbikes and a tree, which is outside a line of shops as the pedestrian, who moved her arm when the car came towards her, runs forward 

As the car hits the bike and tree, she ran a few feet forwards.  

There are two other pedestrians nearby when the car crashed, with one in a baseball cap walking in the same direction the car was reversing. 

There’s another person crouched on the floor outside a shop appearing to sort vegetables into bags, who jumped up as the car crashed. 

The car did not collide with any pedestrians and reportedly no one was injured in this accident.
