THIS is the moment an elderly driver lost control at the wheel and crashed SIX times in one minute – hitting at least three cars and a number of walls.
CCTV footage shows the man pulling out at a road junction – and drive straight across into a pile of bins – before hitting a wall in Handsworth, Birmingham.

The blue Toyota Aygo then reverses back onto the road at speed, straight into a black car.
Nearby shoppers run to help, and the driver of the stricken black car gets out – but narrowly misses being hit when the Toyota lurches around him.
It then ploughed head-on into another car on the road, reverses and spins around, before rocketing off the road again, crashing a fifth time.
Onlookers go to help – but the car zooms forward a final time, across the road and appears to hit a wall.
It is believed the elderly motorist, believed to be in his 70s, suffered a medical issue at the wheel that led to the carnage in Handsworth, Birmingham, on November 3.
A local man, 42, said: “The police said it was a 70-year-old man.
“My friend, who was in the accident, said when the guy came to a stop, his foot was still on the accelerator.
“My friend took his foot off. He had some kind of medical issue. It’s a bit of a crazy situation.
“Four cars were damaged in total, including the man’s. And he hit three walls. He walked away from it though. It was very lucky.”
A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We were called to reports of a road traffic collision on Headingley Road at 1.53pm on November 3rd, one ambulance attended the scene.
“On arrival we discovered a car that had collided with three stationary cars and a wall.
