This is the terrifying moment a car slammed into a group of cars and smashed onto the ground in a charity car stunt fail.

Stuntman Callum McHale, 22, from Mossley in Tameside, was left with a serious spinal injury when he took part in the thrilling stunt at Buxton Raceway in Derbyshire on Thursday (June 2).

Video taken by shocked onlookers shows Callum steering behind the wheel inside a green and silver car, which is set to "fly" above several cars and land without a scratch.

He goes on a ramp on a racecourse at full speed and takes off mid-air before the car flips upside down and smashes onto the ground.

The crowd can be heard gasping in the background as they watch the horror unfold.

Callum, who was hoping to raise money for a Tameside charity called Bart's Community Pantry and Food Bank, broke a bone in his back.

He was treated by paramedics on the scene and later admitted to Tameside Hospital.

He has been given medications and is awaiting further treatment from spine specialists at Salford Royal Hospital.

Callum's grandpa, Stephen Muir, told Manchester Evening News: "Callum, my grandson, loves racing. Four years ago, he did a car jump in aid of Willow Wood Hospice in Ashton, and we raised £750.

"So he asked me if he could do another car jump in aid of my community group.

"I was happy for him to do it, and he did it and we raised £405. The money will go to Barty’s Community Pantry and Foodbank, which is ran by a man called Steven Barton.

"Because of the way he landed, Callum definitely broke a bone in his back. We don't know how bad it is," he added.

"We are waiting see what his scan results are and whether he will need surgery or not. Callum has gotten some really nice comments on Facebook."
