Dashcam footage clears driver of hitting woman because it shows her jumping on his vehicle after running into the road following a row with her family
- A woman dashed out into a North Yorkshire road and was struck by a Peugeot
- This happened following an altercation with her family in the street
- Dashcam footage proves that the unsuspecting driver couldn't have seen her
This incredible footage captures the moment a woman throws herself infront of an unsuspecting Peugeot - clearing the driver of any offence.
The video that was taken in Skipton, North Yorkshire shows a daughter run into the road following an altercation with her family in the street.
Driver Daniel La stopped his car to allow a pedestrian to cross while his dashcam caught the moment the woman jumped into the opposite side of the road.

The footage helped to determine events proving the innocence of the maroon Peugeot driver who may otherwise have faced problems with police.
It managed to prove that the daughter of the group was hidden behind a blind spot and the driver, who was travelling at a safe speed, wouldn't have been unable to see her dash out.
Once the car had struck the woman her mother and other witnessess ran over to help her and called for police and paramedics who were called immediately.
Mr La gave his Nextbase dashcam footage to North Yorkshire Police which proved that the Peugeot driver, who suffered an asthma attack due to the shock, was not at fault.

Speaking to Nextbase Mr La said: 'I was shocked by the incident and of course concerned for the daughter. I later found out from the police that she suffered from mental health conditions and was under the influence of alcohol at the time.
'After the car hit her, she continued to lie on the ground until the paramedics arrived, however the police said that she wasn't hurt and was pretending to be unconscious.
'Once she was loaded into the ambulance, she refused to be taken to the hospital. It's a relief that she wasn't actually harmed and I hope she gets the help she needs so that this doesn't happen again.'

Richard Browning, Director at Nextbase, added: 'There are obviously larger issues at stake here, matters relating to mental health are to be taken extremely seriously.
'However, the fact remains that the Dash Cam footage helped the driver of the Peugeot through what would have been a stressful incident, which was proven by the victim suffering an asthma attack.
'If Daniel hadn't been there on the day with a Dash Cam, the police wouldn't have had the evidence that the driver was innocent and this could have resulted in a much more complex case. This just goes to show how useful Dash Cams can be, not just aiding the owner, but also capturing surrounding incidents as an independent witness.'
