The dramatic moment an allegedly stolen car flew through the air and caught fire in Perth has been filmed.
video surveillance, as seen in the video above, captured the moment the high-speed Mitsubishi Lancer veered on the wrong side of Wilmont Drive in Cooloongup on Tuesday night.
The vehicle then crashes, before flying in the air, turning around several times.
In its path of destruction, the Lancer pulled out a utility pole, before landing in an elderly man’s front yard and catching fire.

Moments later, a person is seen limping away from the stage.
Witnesses said the driver escaped just before police and firefighters arrived.
The Lancer was reportedly stolen in a heist at Silver Sands last week.
