WATCH: Woman drives into path of furious marathon runners

A woman has been filmed driving into the path of runners during a marathon in the UK.

Video uploaded to YouTube shows the moment the woman drives into the path of Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon participants on Sunday.

She’s seen turning onto the road as a man tries to stop her by placing a traffic cone in front of the car.

“You won’t get out,” a man yells.

The man is unable to stop her, and she is seen driving into the path of the marathon runners despite him pressing against the car’s bonnet and standing in front of the vehicle.

He opens her passenger-side door but she continues to drive before she’s pulled over.

“Are you f****** stupid?” a woman asks her as angry runners swarm her car.

“I’m going very slowly. I can’t get out,” she says.

“You’re breaking the law,” a man says.

The woman, who claims to be a resident, says she’s “tried to get out, every which-way”. A woman explains to her she has to wait until the event has finished.

“I have a workshop in Okehampton,” she says.

The woman tells runners she had received no information on when the event starts and finishes.

Another runner tells her she could have killed somebody before a man wearing high-vis with Plymouth City Council printed on the back arrives and tells her to stay parked.

She again explains she was driving slowly and couldn’t find a way to get out. She claims she’s disabled and holds up a few pieces of paper.

The man in high-vis continues to tell her not to drive off.

It’s not known if she was cited over the incident but many Twitter users have condemned her for putting lives at risk.

Team Great Britain sprint hurdler David King tweeted the woman’s behaviour was “disgusting”.

“Why do people think they are above the law and everyone else?” he tweeted.

According to the Plymouth Herald about nearly 3400 people competed in the half-marathon.
