A TERRIFIED mum has spoken of her brush with death after a horror film-style attack by a ‘black car’.
The headlights of the sinister 4x4 were switched off as the vehicle was driven deliberately towards her car on a dual carriageway.
“It was as if it was deliberately trying to hit me and knock me off the road,” she said.
The mum, who has asked not to be named for fear of reprisal, had her three young children in the car with her.
The nightmare began when was driving along Danstead Way on Saturday evening, near Pennyland and Downs Barn.
“A huge black 4x4 was driving in the opposite direction. All of a sudden it turned off its lights and I could hardly see it in the dark.”
As the car approached it swerved, seemingly deliberately, on to the victim’s side of the road.
She steered desperately towards the kerb and managed to avoid a collision. Shaking, she looked in her mirror to see the black car speed past her – and switch its lights back on.
“My children and I could easily have been killed. It was so frightening, but I have no idea why the vehicle did it.
“I fear that something sinister was going on and the truth needs to be known before a tragedy happens.”
The mum reported the attack to the police who are trying to track down the driver of the vehicle.
Officers are now appealing for witnesses to the Danstead Way incident, which happened around 6.30pm.
They would also like to hear from any drivers who have experienced similar attacks on the road by the driver of a black 4x4.
The victim, who is still shaken after her ordeal, is urging any with information to help.
“A very nasty person, a potential killer, is behind the wheel of that car and the public should beware,” she said.
