A teenager reversed into a shopping centre at speed – nearly hitting two passersby in the process – while rowing with his girlfriend in the car.

The 17-year-old driver was behind the wheel of a grey Honda as it suddenly went backwards.

Footage shows the out-of-control vehicle smashing through a row of bollards before ramming into the building.

A couple walking past have to jump clear of the wayward car and one of them ends up on the ground.

The accident happened while the driver was arguing with his girlfriend outside the Paseo Monclova shopping centre in Monclova, located northwest of Monterrey, Mexico.

The emergency services arrived at the scene to treat several people with minor injuries on Sunday (12 May.)

The teenage driver was placed under arrest, as reported by What’s The Jam.

According to local media, the youth took his parent’s Honda without their permission and was involved in another accident outside the centre before.

Witnesses saw the couple arguing in the car just before José stepped on the gas and reversed into the building.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

One local said: “I’m not going to lie to you, I thought the video was playing backwards.”
