This is the disturbing moment a woman crashed her friend’s car into a glass bus stop.

Dashcam footage shows Monique Moss swerving the black Ford Focus before the collision in Crawley, West Sussex.

The 46-year-old was seen on another driver’s dashcam abandoning the smashed-up vehicle sideways in the middle of the road and walking away.

Sussex Police attended the scene of the incident at about 8am, and the driver was nowhere to be found.

Further inquiries led to Moss’ arrest whose last known address was Brighton Road, Crawley.

She had visited a friend that morning, stealing the set of keys for the Ford despite already been disqualified from driving.
