This is the shocking moment a sports car overtakes a learner driver at speed before losing control a crashing.
Dash cam footage captured the scene in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, where the silver Mazda accelerated past the learner driver in the dark Toyota after being stuck behind it.
The silver car spins out of control and its rear end smacks into an cable box on Elenora Road after shooting round the bend of Liverpool Road on a slippery surface.
The crashed car then goes completely static as a man is seen sprinting across the road to aid the driver who a witness said was unhurt.
The incident happened on Tuesday at around 12:40pm on Liverpool Road which was thankfully otherwise empty at the time.
Ant Brown, 44, a Key Account Manager from Birmingham recorded the scene on his dash cam.

He said: ‘Wed been stuck behind the Learner for a while doing the speed limit or below, and when it became 2 lanes the MX5 decided to drop a gear and floor it – guess he forgot about the rear wheel drive and the greasy road.’
Ant added that no one was seriously injured at the scene.
‘Luckily no-one was hurt – apart from someone’s pride and Stoke’s Internet connection!! What went through my mind? ‘At last, I’ve had a dashcam for 2 years and finally caught something other than Road Rage,’ he said.
