Police are hunting a driver who deliberately ploughed their car into a crowd of wedding guests in Adelaide.

Security cameras captured the moment the vehicle knocked down one person before reversing and hitting two more before speeding away.

The newlyweds were having their reception at a Hatherleigh Road home, at Parafield Gardens in the city’s north.

Neighbours say it initially sounded like a joyful celebration but that changed around 10pm last night.

Richard Swart said his wife alerted him to a noise.

“My wife said to me that she heard screaming,” he told 9News.

“I can’t believe things like that happen at a wedding.”

Security footage shows the car pulling up before what appears to be an exchange between the driver and some of the guests.

The vehicle then reverses into a group mingling in the driveway.

One of the victims, aged 16, was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The other victims, a 28-year-old Royal Park woman and a 36-year-old Parafield Gardens man didn’t need medical treatment.

“I hope they catch that wicked person. That is a wicked act,” another neighbour Alhaji Dunbaya told 9News.

Police are still looking for the driver.
