Amazon driver filmed reversing van into a customer’s car then driving off
He was caught on film pushing the car backwards several feet, before driving away as if nothing had happened
Jane Johnston-Guest, 35, shared footage of what happened, along with pictures of her Ford Ka.
‘Super early Christmas present from Amazon tonight as their driver smashes into my car and then just drives off,’ Jane wrote on Facebook.
The footage, taken at 9pm on Sunday, opens as the male driver, in high-vis clothing, gets out of his van. He delivers the package off camera, walks back into shot, then steps back into the van.
The other part of the footage, filmed from Jane’s neighbour’s door, shows the van reversing hard into Jane’s car. There is an audible crash with the Ford Ka being shoved back four to five feet.
The driver can be seen swiveling his head round to see what has happened, appearing to briefly survey the damage.
He then drives the van to the end of the lane before reversing all the way back down and out of the street. ‘I am appalled that somebody would just drive off after clearly causing a lot of damage,’
Jane said. ‘We haven’t had the car assessed yet but I am anticipating they will write it off. It is currently not drivable.’
A spokesman for Amazon said: ‘This does not reflect the standards we have delivery service partners. ‘This individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages, and we are working with the customer directly to resolve this matter.’
