Chilling CCTV shows the moment a hit-and-run driver killed a stranger by reversing into a road sign which fell and split his head in two after a row outside a brothel.

Drug dealer Tony Green, 27, ploughed his Skoda into Shkelzen Taka, 28, on Boxing Day last year in Birmingham

Just seconds before, Green hit a metal sign which collapsed onto the victim causing a ‘complete bisection of his face and head’ and killing him instantly.

The pair had exchanged words in the early hours of the morning following a chance encounter outside a massage parlour.

Green was found guilty of murder and will be sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court tomorrow.

Green then jumped into his Skoda Octavia and deliberately reversed into the BMW causing further damage before driving off.

Mr Taka followed the vehicle on foot for a short distance but backed away onto the pavement when Green stopped and began to reverse.

Green swerved towards his victim and struck a metal road sign which fell, hitting Mr Taka on the head.

The court heard the road sign ’caused nearly a complete bisection of his face and head’.

This would have killed Mr Taka ‘almost instantaneously.’

The Skoda then drove over Mr Taka’s lifeless body and sped away from the scene.

The vehicle was found burnt out later that same day.

A member of the public was left to discover Mr Taka’s body and called paramedics who pronounced him dead at the scene at 5.57am.

Green denied being responsible for trying to destroy evidence and also claimed he put the car in reverse by mistake after having problems with the gear box.

But a jury took just an hour on Monday to decide he was lying and found him guilty of murder.

Green, of Erdington, will be jailed at Birmingham Crown Court tomorrow.

Detective Inspector Wes Martin, of West Midlands Police’s Homicide Unit, said after the case: ‘This is a tragic case where a chance encounter has led to the death of a family man and the imprisonment of another for life.

‘All too often impetuous acts of violence lead to tragedy as we have seen here.

‘My thoughts remain with Shkelzen’s family who continue to mourn his loss.’

At the time of his death Mr Taka’s family said: ‘Shkelzen was a much loved brother and partner and his family are devastated at his loss.’
