Another car then speeds down the street from the opposite direction and smashes head-on into the first vehicle.
Plumes of smoke erupt from the engines of the cars as they collide and spin round to a standstill.
Ms Bauer, 62, can then be heard shouting: ‘Jesus Christ.’
A door of the second car is then flung open and two men are seen sprinting away from the scene.
Ms Bauer then shouts: ‘Call the cops! Right now.’
A dog is heard barking in the background as two more men scurry out of the second car and sprint away, apparently leaving a fifth man lying on the road.
Jeaninne Bauer said :’The impact was tremendous. I do not know how anybody survived… I’m still shaking from it’

Police say the crash, at 6.23pm, was so violent it tore both cars apart and huge chunks of metal remained in the street near 77th and Lisbon a day later.
Ms Bauer told MailOnline: ‘When this happened I was in my office in the back of the house, the window was open and suddenly I heard several pops and then it sounded like a bomb went off.
‘I flew to the front to see two cars mangled with smoke billowing from them and people running, one person on the ground, etc.
‘I yelled to my husband to call the cops, but I had my phone closer so I did.
‘They were at the scene in less than three minutes. We’ve lived on my block for 27 years this coming October, it’s a quiet residential area, where this is not normal.
‘There are families with little kids and elderly. We are physically ok, but very shaken up and mentally exhausted from this experience.’
Ms Bauer told CBS: ‘All of a sudden you hear this massive boom. It literally sounded like a bomb exploded.
‘The impact was tremendous. I do not know how anybody survived.
‘What happened yesterday was beyond understanding. I’m still shaking from it.’
She added that she had to stop her husband from going to help anyone who had been injured because she didn’t want him to end up being shot.
Milwaukee police found two guns at the scene and emergency responders had to cut one person out of one of the cars.

An 18-year-old man was taken to hospital but everyone survived both the shooting and the crash.
Acting Mayor Cavalier Johnson’s office gave a statement that read: ‘He received a detailed briefing from the police department on this shooting.
‘He is alarmed by the brazenness and disregard of life.
‘The Mayor also appreciates the police work and the multiple arrests that have been made.
‘He continues to work with police and with teams involved in prevention to reduce violence in the city.
‘He also wants state legislators to seriously address the ongoing problem of guns in the hands of people who should not have them.
‘It is also time to revisit the absence of restrictions on private gun sales.’
The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office will consider any criminal charges.
