Terrifying footage has emerged of holiday makers screaming as a British driver ploughed through pedestrians injuring a seven-week-old baby and at least five others.
The clip captured dramatic moment a 4×4 allegedly driven by a drunk driver mows down and injures pedestrians in the holiday resort of Puerto Banus as the Audi SQ7 appears to be driven deliberately at victims.
Horrified Brits caught up in the carnage can be heard screaming in panic as the vehicle screeches round a pedestrianised area near the resort’s famous Ocean Club.
Six people were taken to hospital and the driver was arrested after crashing into vehicles having led police on a wild chase on the wrong side of the road.

One woman overlooking the scene shouts out in English: ‘Get away’ after the car appears to smash into another vehicle on a roundabout before mounting the pavement for a second time and being driven recklessly at speed.
Another Brit can be heard yelling: ‘Get him’ and ‘Get away’ as the vehicle comes back into shot on a video filmed using a mobile phone and pulls to a stop alongside a bare-chested man in shorts who appears to be injured and is on his knees in a flower bed.
A man in a blue T-shirt – who looks to have been a passenger in the Audi – seems to get out of the vehicle and slams the door shut before disappearing.
The car then speeds away as the first sirens near – leading police on a spectacular chase which ended when it smashed into several vehicles on the wrong side of the road nearby Marbella’s famous Golden Mile.
The Audi screeching around the corner before appearing to deliberately ploughing into pedestrians
The Brit driver, in his late 20s, was arrested at the scene as well as the passenger.
The driver has been arrested after mowing down pedestrians in the Costa del Sol holiday resort of Puerto Banus before smashing into several cars during a police chase.
The unnamed 22-year-old is believed to have been asked to leave the nearby Ocean Club – which was hosting its annual champagne party – after a fight.
Police are now investigating whether he deliberately mounted the pavement and drove down a pedestrian area leading to the club, mowing down people in his path – including a seven-week-old baby.
Officers confirmed they have arrested two Brits over last night’s horrific scenes.
He was initially described as a 22-year-old, although sources close to the investigation said today he was born in 1990 making him 26 or 27 years old.
The well-informed source said: ‘A passenger in the car has also been arrested.
‘He is being held at a police station in Marbella near Puerto Banus in connection with last night’s incidents.
‘The driver is at Marbella’s Costa del Sol Hospital.
‘Both men are British.’
The vehicle was left a write-off after a high-speed police chase which ended with the black Audi invading the wrong carriageway on the nearby Golden Mile dual-carriageway running between Marbella and Puerto Banus before hitting several cars including one in which three people including a young baby were injured
The passenger in the car was born in 1989, making him 27 or 28. It is not known if they were on holiday in the area or live in Spain.
The two men are expected to be hauled before an investigating judge tomorrow/on Tuesday.
Although they will not face immediate charges, the driver at least may be told he is being investigated on suspicion of attempted murder if police feel there is evidence pointing to him trying to deliberate harm his alleged victims.
Local reports said he had been asked to leave a packed champagne party taking place at the Ocean Club following an altercation between two groups of Brits.
Witnesses have told police the Audi SQ7 he was driving was driven deliberately at high speed at pedestrians in an area off-limits to cars which runs from a roundabout down to steps overlooking the Mediterranean and the entrance to the Ocean Club.
The vehicle was left a write-off after a high-speed police chase which ended with the black Audi invading the wrong carriageway on the nearby Golden Mile dual-carriageway running between Marbella and Puerto Banus before hitting several cars including one in which three people including a young baby were injured.
The incident happened just after 9pm last night as revellers were leaving the Ocean Club on one of its busiest days of the year.
Six people are understood to have been transferred to Marbella’s Costa del Sol hospital – one with a broken leg and another with a possible fractured pelvis.
A third person arrived unconscious and was last night undergoing tests.
The other three people, who are not described as seriously injured, were a 38-year-old man, a 35-year-old and a baby believed to be just weeks old.
They are thought to be members of the same family and were travelling in the car hit by the Audi on the Golden Mile.
Police are now investigating whether the driver deliberately mounted the pavement and drove down a pedestrian area.
Initial fears the incident on the stretch of road known as the Golden Mile was terror-related were ruled out by police who said the driver had been drunk.
The incident happened around 9pm on Sunday as revellers were leaving the popular venue after its annual champagne party, which attracts celebrities and international footballers.
