This is the moment a bungling posh BMW convertible driver skids sideways into a lamppost after losing control of the vehicle.
The incident took place in the village of Chabany near Kiev in the Ukraine when the driver of the expensive BMW convertible failed to negotiate a right turn and crashed into a pole.
On the recording from the street surveillance camera, the busy intersection can be seen being filmed at night.
The convertible then approaches from the left of the footage with the driver turning sharply to the right, but as he does so the oversteers and the rear of the vehicle swings round, skidding sideways.
It then hits the poll on the pavement at considerable speed, with the passenger then flying into the air as if they are in a mini ejection seat before landing back in the car.
The video was posted online with the message: “BMW rear-wheel drive convertible coupled with an inability to manage it sometimes lead to unexpected consequences and accidents.”
After the passenger, who appears unharmed regained his seat, the driver then simply put the car back into gear and moves back onto the road, crossing over double solid line and driving off despite the extensive dent in the side of his vehicle.
It was not revealed whether police were investigating the incident which happened on 8th September.
