The female pedestrian noticed the car and stopped in time, but the man was further forward and had to jump out the way as the car swerved between them.

Michael Andrews, who filmed the incident on his dashcam, said: "He said: 'I did not see him [the driver] coming so it was a big shock.

"I was amazed he missed both pedestrians. On another day that could easily have been a fatality.
