This is the moment a bungling female learner driver knocks over two stopped riders like bowling pins by turning into them head on.

The unnamed woman driver from the city of Qinzhou in China’s southern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region received her first driving licence six months ago.

It means, according to Chinese traffic regulations, that she is still considered a learner driver until she has held the permit for a full year, but her hopes of graduating to an official licence may have been dashed following the accident on 11th February.

Traffic camera footage shows the motorist turning off a motorway slip road in her Chinese-made Baojun 730 people carrier.

She attempts a right turn onto a main road but is travelling so fast that her car fails to brake in time, causing her to draft dramatically into the opposite lane before slamming head on into the two riders.

The male victims – one on a scooter and the other on a motorcycle – had been stopped at a red light, and both are sent flying like bowling pins, falling either side of the people carrier.

The riders suffered minor injuries and were taken to hospital for treatment.

Qinzhou police said they had seized the woman’s people carrier and are still investigating the case.
