This is the shocking moment a recovery truck appears to ram into a Tesla car multiple times after a fight broke out in Sydenham.

The white truck was filmed repeatedly crashing into a black Tesla before driving off in Southend Lane.

The two-minute footage, which was posted on X (formally known as Twitter) on January 27, has been viewed more than 340,000 times.

The footage begins by showing a man in a red tracksuit fighting with another person, with a man holding a metal pole trying to intervene. 

WARNING:  Explicit Language

It continues to show the man with the pole chasing the man in the red tracksuit around the black Tesla car.

The camera then pans to the white tow truck which appears to repeatedly ram into the Tesla.

The tyres of the tow truck can be heard screeching as the driver crashes into the car over and over.

A person can also be heard in the video saying: “He just went into his car, oh my days. Look what he’s doing.

“What the f**k. What are you doing? Look at what he’s doing, this man has gone mad.

“What the f**k, you’re going to get nicked.”

Several other vehicles can also be heard honking in the clip while the incident unfolds.

Some people were left shocked in the comments of the video, with one commenting: “That is crazy.”

Another person said: “South London is a mad place.”
