Husband deliberately mowed down wife in street after she asked for divorce
Footage has been released of a man deliberately mowing down his wife with his car after she told him she wanted a divorce.
The incident, which was caught on camera in the Russian city of Khabarovsk, escalated after the married couple had an argument in the car.
According to local media, the 26-year-old woman then told her husband she wanted a divorce and got out of the car which was stopped in the middle of the road.
The video then shows the blue car performing a U-turn before deliberately striking the woman in the middle of the road.
While she avoids being hit head-on by the vehicle, the woman is hit with force by the right hand side of the car and is thrown to the floor.
The car then continues onto the pavement and even uproots a tree.
Clutching her back, the woman manages to get to her feet before lying down on the floor.
Meanwhile the man inside the car can be seen opening the door and stepping out of the vehicle.
Horrified onlookers acted quickly to call an ambulance and the police, according to local media.
It is reported that the woman sustained bruises and a possible kidney injury from the collision but refused to be hospitalised.
While police are investigating the incident, it is not clear whether the man has been arrested or if he will be charged.
Social media users reacted to the video with one commenting that the driver "should have just let her go."
Netizen ‘Aleksandr Kalugin’ added: "She either pissed him off or he does not know how to drive".
