A STUNNED mum says she’s “lucky to be alive” after her gums were ripped out when a road rage maniac rammed her car.
Shocking footage captured the moment Kirsty Greenman, 32, suffered horrific facial injuries after her stationary Audi A3 was hit side-on by a Seat Leon just as she was getting into it.
Housewife Kirsty was smashed in the face by her car door which cut her lip and ripped the gums from her teeth.
She was rushed to hospital where her wound was stitched and she was left eating and drinking through a straw for four days last month.
The smash came after an hour-long ordeal in which her family were involved in a dispute with two young men who were driving the black Seat.
Kirsty’s partner Charlie Herbert claimed he earlier had been “cut-up” by the Seat at a crossing at Bradford, West Yorks.
The two cars met by chance some time later at a junction when the incident happened.
CCTV footage shows the terrifying moment the furious driver aimed his car directly at Kirsty’s – smashing into the passenger side at speed.
Kirsty was with boyfriend Charlie, 25, and son Keaton, 12, from Bradford, when the incident happened at around 3pm on Friday September 20.
She said: “I can’t sleep because I keep having visions of a car trying to hit me.

“It’s a lot of trauma and we just want to get justice for what has happened.
“It was all over road rage. This was crazy and he came after us. I am worried that these guys are still out there.
“It gives me nightmares. I am scared to go out in the car. What happened to us was unimaginable.”
The family, driving in their red Audi A3, had just been visiting Kirsty’s mum in Wyke, Bradford, when they were cut up at a crossing by the young driver, aged around 21 – 24.
She went on: “We pulled over with the other driver pulling in front of us, Charlie and the other guy were arguing and shouting.
“I thought they were going to reverse back into our car so I got out of the car and stood in front to stop them, this put it to an end and we went about our separate ways.”
Kirsty and her family then went shopping in Brighouse and had returned back to Bradford an hour later to pick her other kids, Chloe, 11, and Ethan, six, up from school when they saw them again.
This so very easily could have been a murder investigation. Those drivers used their car as a weapon. It was so scary that it got out of control like that.Kirsty Greenman
The mum added: “We were behind the guys at a junction and we noticed it was them. They went to reverse into us so we all jumped out of the car.
“Charlie went to their car to try and take the keys from the driver to stop them but they managed to grab hold of him and started driving up the road with him.
“He managed to break free and the car reversed into him but he managed to jump out of the way, instead the car hit a gate.
“I then started to go back to our car as I realised we had left everything, including the car keys, in there.
“Unbeknown to me the driver had started heading back and then smashed into our car.
“They hit the open door, which smacked into my face. I do not know how my jaw wasn’t broken. The pain was crushing.
“This so very easily could have been a murder investigation.
“Those drivers used their car as a weapon. It was so scary that it got out of control like that.
A spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police said: “We are aware of the incident and enquiries are ongoing.”
