A motorist caught on CCTV ploughing into a group of men as they crossed the street in a revenge attack is facing jail after using his car as a "lethal weapon".
Footage captures the moment Aqab Hussain, 21, mowed down a group of men after "horseplay" over a baseball cap led to a fight outside a club.
One man was knocked to the side, another catapulted over the roof and a third carried down the street before Hussain swerved to dislodge him from the bonnet.
One of the victims was left with "life-changing" head injuries and the other two suffered significant injuries. A fourth man managed to jump out of the way.
Hussain, from Manchester, made no attempt to stop the car and fled the UK three days after the incident.
He was arrested just over seven weeks later by police officers at Manchester Airport as he returned from abroad.
Hussain was convicted of four counts of attempted murder by a jury at Manchester Crown Court and will be sentenced at a later date.
The court heard the incident, on John Dalton Street, in Manchester city centre, took place in the early hours of August 21 last year.
Rachael Pavion, prosecuting, said: "Aqab Hussain used his car as a weapon, he sought revenge by driving at speed deliberately at the four men with a clear intention to kill.
"After he struck his victims, he drove from the scene and showed complete disregard for the harm he had caused.
"One of the men received life-changing head injuries; he was catapulted into the air after being carried on the bonnet of the vehicle for several metres, the two other men sustained substantial injuries.
"Eye witnesses, together with CCTV and forensic evidence helped to prove that he was the driver of the vehicle that had collided with the victims."
