AN idiot driver smashed into a parked car when she drove off with the boot and bonnet up.
The woman tried to get away after a heated argument in the street with a man, who stood in front of her in an attempt to stop her from leaving.
He also opened the boot and bonnet last month in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear before she reversed and then crashed head-first into another motor.
Stay-at-home gran Tracey Spraggon, 55, heard the commotion and watched through her window as the blinded driver smashed the Mercedes hatchback into her family’s Volkswagen Touran.
She said: "I'm just absolutely fuming at what she's done, driving with the bonnet up and the back end.
"It was the thought that the kids could've been playing out and been killed because they always play curby in the street and for some reason that morning they weren't.
