"There was this massive noise. I thought it was someone throwing bins in the road," the 33-year-old said.

"I went to my window and it looked like a Hollywood scene - the car was upside down with the wheels in the air. There was a lot of smoke coming out."

Mr Soncin said two police cars, two fire engines and an ambulance arrived at the scene.
