Disturbing footage shows the moment a driver repeatedly ran over two women outside a nightclub.
McCauley Cox, 19, left his victims with serious injuries after ‘using his car as a weapon’.
CCTV played in front of a jury shows Cox ploughing into the crowd of revellers in Newport, south Wales.
The teen was today found guilty of two counts of grievous bodily harm with intent and warned he will face ‘a substantial sentence in a young offenders institute.’
Newport Crown Court was told Cox, who has a previous conviction for leading police on a high-speed chase on the M4, approached the crowd in the Ford C-Max people carrier on April 29.
He then ran over Sophie Poole and Emma Nicholls, who were sat on a kerb, and reversed back over their bodies.
Jurors were told how people smashed the car’s windscreen, prompting Cox to accelerate out of the road at speed, missing other pedestrians by mere inches.
Police found the car abandoned later that day having been set on fire.
James Wilson, prosecuting, said: ‘You were using the car as a weapon.
‘You know full well the reason you went for that man is because he was confronting a friend of yours.
‘You deliberately drove that car at that man with intent to cause him very serious harm.
‘And you are responsible for those girls’ injuries because of your anger and annoyance at that man who was confronting your friend.’
Nathan Rumble, a witness, said: ‘He was going for them.
‘You can’t just hit someone twice and not know what you are doing.’
The court heard how the victims, friends from university, suffered ‘really serious injuries’. Miss Poole needed specialist skin grafts and Miss Nicholls suffered a lacerated spleen.
Cox, from Newport, was remanded in custody and will be sentenced at the same court on Friday.
