Warning, this article contains footage some might find distressing. 

CCTV footage shows the shocking moment a pensioner is hit by a car and flung into the air.

Tony Jauncey, aged 82, spent a week in hospital after suffering “severe” injuries including cracked ribs, a broken collar bone, and injuries to his right leg.

He says he was "lucky" that three nurses were passing at the time of the crash at a mini roundabout in Kidderminster town centre.

Mr Jauncey said he was walking back to his car, which was parked by Aldi, when the crash happened.

Footage, which Mr Jauncey asked us to share to spread awareness of the incident, appears to show a car cutting the mini roundabout to head up Oxford Street.

He said the next thing he saw as he went to cross the road was the bumper of a car in front of him.

He said: "I was lying in the road. I was not able to move".

He said nurses moved him into a position where he would be more comfortable. 

He said many who witnessed the incident came to his aid which made him feel "at ease" with the situation.

The road was closed off as the ambulance service and police were called to the town centre.

Mr Jauncey was rushed to Russell’s Hall Hospital in Brierley Hill with "life-changing" injuries. He returned home after a week in hospital.

Reflecting on the incident, which happened on Friday, January 19, Mr Jauncey, from Hartlebury, added: "This could easily have been a fatal accident particularly had there been a child involved".

He thanked the nurses Faye McCann, Carly Lewis and Jack Burge for their support on the day, and others who stepped in to assist.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 12.30pm on Friday 19th January to a road traffic collision involving a car and a pedestrian at the junction of Marlborough Street and Oxford Street in Kidderminster.

"One ambulance attended the scene. Upon arrival, we found an elderly man who was the pedestrian who had sustained serious injuries.

"He received treatment at the scene from ambulance staff before being conveyed to Russell’s Hall Hospital for further treatment.”
