A cyclist trapped under a car in Oxford was rescued by a group of quick-thinking passers-by. Amateur footage shows a dozen or so people tilting a blue Ford allowing the woman to be freed.

Watch the footage below.

The incident took place outside a coffee shop in New Inn Hall Street in Oxford yesterday afternoon. Mehmet Yildirim who filmed the footage from the coffee shop upstairs, told the Oxford Mail that “it was like a big earthquake – it was a terrible shake.”

It has been reported that the South Central Ambulance Service treated the woman at the scene for serious leg injuries and was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital.

It is alleged that the car reversed and collided with the cyclist before backing into the coffee shop.
