- Mohammad Abdullah from Scunthorpe, left victims with several fractures
- 30-year-old banned from driving for eight years at Grimsby Crown Court
- 'Shocking and dreadful' road rage attack was captured on CCTV footage
A man who deliberately mowed down two pedestrians in a 'shocking' road rage attack which was caught on CCTV has been jailed for six years.
Mohammad Abdullah, 30, of Mulgrave Street, Scunthorpe, left his victims with life-changing injuries after the 'dreadful episode' in April this year.
Footage shows the two victims, Mark Thompson, 35, and his uncle, Kevin Morson, 53, crossing the road before Abdullah ploughs into them at high speed.
Abdullah, who was said to have shown 'genuine remorse', was also banned from driving for eight years at Grimsby Crown Court.
Mr Thompson and Mr Morson, were crossing Frodingham Road in Scunthorpe in the early hours of April 14.
The pair had been out socialising in Scunthorpe and were described by prosecutor Jeremy Evans as being 'merry'.
The film shows Abdullah's Saab driving towards the men and swerving to avoid them at the last minute.
Mr Evans told the court: 'This is nothing more, at this stage, than a road-rage spat.
He had taken exception to two males that are crossing the road, safely but not at a crossing.
'He's going to give them a warning with his vehicle.'
The prosecution said Abdullah: 'Intentionally reversed his car and positioned it at an angle that faced directly at the complainants' before hitting them
The road rage attack took place after an altercation between the victims and the occupants of the Saab
The court heard there was an angry exchange between Mr Thompson and Mr Morson and the occupants of the car.
Abdullah then performed a 'double reversing manoeuvre' to line his car up with the men before accelerating at speed towards them.
The CCTV footage shows Mr Thompson being thrown over the bonnet and roof of the car, while Mr Morson, who has mobility issues and uses a walking stick, is hit by the corner of the vehicle.
Both men suffered fractures to their legs as a result and the footage shows Mr Thompson's leg give way as he tries to stand up following the attack.
Abdullah immediately drove away and abandoned the car, his keys and his mobile phone
before leaving the area and travelling to London by public transport.
He pled guilty after watching the footage in court earlier this week.

Judge Peter Kelson QC told Abdullah, who earlier pled guilty to two counts of grievous bodily harm with intent: 'This is, in your life, an isolated, albeit shocking, incident.'
He continued: 'It was one dreadful episode. It was one awful manoeuvre.
'You have lived, effectively, a law-abiding, constructive life as a family man but for 15 seconds of your life when you did this mad thing in a terrible temper.'
