Watch: Shocking video captures horror crash in Gzira

This is the terrifying moment a classic car crashed in front of shocked holidaymakers in Gzira.

Dramatic footage caught on CCTV shows a 1970s Jensen-Healey heading at speed along The Strand before spinning out of control and slamming into two parked cars in a burst of dust and smoke.

Eyewitnesses said it was lucky the accident didn’t happen on the other side of the road, which is lined by pavement cafés serving breakfast to tourists.
