In an incident compared to the video game Grand Theft Auto, three friends run down by a vengeful driver were "knocked over like skittles", according to a witness.
Aqab Hussain, 21, was convicted of four counts of attempted murder for driving into the victims, reports the Daily Mail.
The victims, who were thrown into the air and left for dead when Hussain sped off, were on a night out in Manchester, in the United Kingdom, and were crossing the road when Hussain drove at them.

One victim, Michael Ward, was vision impaired before the hit-and-run but now is paralysed on one side. His skull was fractured and he spent 20 days in intensive care. His speech remains affected.
Martin Harris and Paul Hulme also received injuries.
The terrifying incident happened after both Hussain and his victims attended the same lap dancing club in the early hours of August 21 last year. A row outside the club escalated into the speeding Grand Theft Auto-type attack.
Witness Corey Gordon was sitting in his car when he saw the attack.
He said: "It was like ten pin bowling where you hit the skittles and they go up in the air. I can only describe it as unreal - a computer game like Grand Theft Auto - as he swerved off line to hit the men. It knocked one of the men at least 7ft into the air."
The Manchester Crown Court was told Hussain wobbled his vehicle to shake off one of the men who was on the bonnet.
Hussain denied driving the car and denied all charges. It emerged he had previous convictions for dangerous driving and failing to stop after an accident.
He was remanded in custody to face on October 31.
