SHOCKING video shows a gang of 16 thugs smashing a car with baseball bats then dragging out two men for a beating on the street.
A flatbed lorry is first seen spearing into a white car in reverse before armed gang members surround the victims in Birmingham today.
Around eight armed hooligans are seen sprinting from the truck’s cab and from other motors in the apparently planned ambush.
Then more and more men arrive to join the attack, savagely clubbing the windscreen and doors with large bats.
They are seen opening the passenger door and striking with the weapons inside the vehicle.
On the other side, the driver appears to be dragged out and hit repeatedly as he lies on the road.
