In footage from another driver’s dashcam, a learner driver is steadily going round a corner.
Behind them, though, is a silver Mazda MX5 about to make a very dangerous move.
Moving towards the green traffic light, the sports car suddenly accelerates into the lane on the right.
But the driver misjudges their speed and ends up skidding along the road.
The Mazda turns 180-degrees before slamming a wall.
Both the dashcam driver and the the learner stop in shock at what they have just seen.
This incident occurred in Stoke-on-Trent on Tuesday just after midday.
Footage was captured by Ant Brown, 44, who shared it on Facebook.
“Luckily no one was hurt, apart from someone’s pride and Stoke’s internet connection”
He said: “We’d been stuck behind the learner for a while doing the speed limit or below, and when it became two lanes the MX5 decided to drop a gear and floor it.
“I guess he forgot about the rear-wheel drive and the greasy road.
“Luckily no one was hurt, apart from someone’s pride and Stoke’s internet connection.”
Ant helped the driver out of the damaged Mazda – and was very surprised to see the culprit.
“I went to check on him after pulling over and surprised to see a 60+ gent driving and looking a bit embarrassed,” he added.
“He wanted to go but both tyres were blown, so I stopped the traffic for him to turn round and park up.”
The learner driver, a young woman, was “very shook up” after the incident, according to Ant.
This is not the first time impatient drivers have been caught on camera recently.
A Jeep driver who tried to jump the queue at Tesco was taught a lesson last week.
While a van driver reversed on the M1 while harassing a fellow road user last month.
