A WRECKLESS driver has been caught on camera racing for some lights before hitting a moped rider.
The Vauxhall Astra driver was being impatient but the result certainly wasn't worth such dangerous driving.
The video was shot using a dash cam from a car and begins with the camera car approaching some traffic lights.
As the lights begin to change a grey Vauxhall Astra is seen passing the camera car at speed on the wrong side of the road.
It's clearly speeding to try and get through the lights before they turn red and it just makes it through as they're on orange.
However, rather than carry straight on, the Astra instantly turns right across the traffic coming the other way.

Turning right at the junction is legal, but the driver should wait for a gap in the traffic.
Instead, the driver ploughs across the junction smashing into a Just Eat moped rider dressed in a bright orange jacket.
The moped rider can be seen on the bonnet of the Astra before rolling onto the road. He then gets up and hops around in pain.

The camera car gets to the lights, waits, and then turns to show the aftermath of the incident.
The moped rider looks to be OK and the Astra has pulled over on the left-hand side and is walking back towards the Just Eat worker.
