A video of an alleged Uber vehicle losing control, smashing into at least three stationary cars has emerged.
The footage posted online on Twitter by @GAIKASAYS shows a silver Toyota Prius with Transport for London private hire signage in the front window.
The vehicle pulls up in what looks like a quiet London Mews and the driver of the vehicle exits to help his passenger.
Unfortunately the unmanned driverless minicab started to accelerate towards parked cars as the driver scrambled inside.
The Prius collided first with a black VW Golf and sped towards a convertible car with the driver’s door swinging open. The minicab mounted the bonnet and smashed into the back of a third vehicle, which appeared to be a commercial van.
There did not appear to be any injuries as residents rushed to help the red-faced minicab driver.
The Twitter user was posting as part of a separate issue involving a sleepy DJ who was hit with a £1,500 minicab bill after falling asleep in his Uber.
Uber responded to the video on Twitter saying: “We absolutely want to follow up right away. Please send us a DM with your phone number and the location where this particular incident happened, so we can connect.”
