A Ballarat man has told of his fear that he was going to die after his car was rammed by a hoon just after he left work earlier this week.
The man, who asked not to be named, has shared dashcam footage of the incident which occurred in central Ballarat just before 1am on Tuesday.
The footage, which can be seen below, shows the man desperately trying to avoid car which tail gated him from Ascot Street, through Newington and back onto Dana Street as he tried to drive to the police station.
The car was eventually rammed near the corner of Doveton Street, before the hoon driver sped away at high speed.
"I felt like I was in a movie being chased by a villain," the victim said. "My thinking was, he's going to run me off the road and kill me.
The man said he believed the car had tailed him from Ascot Street after a person glared at him near the corner of Sturt and Ascot streets.
"I knew he was right up on my tail because I couldn't see the headlight, he was that close," he said.
"He was revving his car, he was right on my tail.
"I just went into survival mode and even after he rammed me, I kept driving because I was desperate to get to the police station. I thought I was going to end up crashing into parked cars."
The man said the car was a dark 1990s Honda Accord with the last three numbers of the number plate being 169. Debris from a headlight found at the scene included a serial number from that make of car.
Acting Inspector Ben Young said police were aware of the terrifying incident and were investigating.
"He's been chased and rammed at the same time, it's a terrifying incident," Inspector Young said.
