A driver had a lucky escape when he left the handbrake off his fiancee’s car and it rolled into a busy main road.
Ethan Bellingham, of Walsall, West Midlands, was caught on CCTV getting out of Emma Freeman’s white BMW and walking towards the front door.
But as he disappeared out of shot the car started to roll towards the busy road.

The footage, taken one a home security camera, shows Mr Bellingham getting out of Emma Freeman’s white BMW
The video, which was posted to TikTok, shows the BMW slowly rolling down the driveway towards the main road as multiple cars drive by.
Three cars zoom past on the far side of the road before two drivers approaching from both directions slam on their brakes and avoid hitting the BMW.
The rogue car then thankfully slows down and halts in the middle of the road – without causing or suffering any damage at all.
Mr Bellingham can then be seen calmly walking towards the car and safely returning it back to the driveway.
Ms Freeman shared the footage last night, writing: ‘Someone’s looking over my car.

One replied: ‘The cars stopped like they were letting a duck cross the road. Hopefully there’s no damage done.’
Another added: ‘It always makes me giggle as the car waits to roll until the person gets out. It’s a bit like Toy Story.’
