This is the moment a teenage couple – allegedly drunk – run a red light on their scooter and send a pensioner flying off his motorcycle when they plough through a busy crossroads.
The 17-year-old surnamed Huang, from the city of Liuzhou in China’s southern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, was captured by a traffic camera at the junction of Pingshan Avenue and Jianpan Road.
In the footage, the teenager and his girlfriend riding pillion follow a red car which enters the crossroads after the lights turn red – right in front of a traffic cop.
Several dozen scooters begin riding into the junction from both sides, but Huang does not stop or slow down before slamming into one of the vehicles belonging to the pensioner, knocking him off his motorcycle.
The trio crash off the two scooters and are left injured on the road as concerned pedestrians and eventually the traffic cop run over to check on them.
According to the police, none of the three were seriously injured during the crash, which has been ruled as a result of Huang’s alleged drink-driving.
The authorities say Huang will be held fully liable for the accident and will pay for the medical expenses of the injured pensioner, surnamed Wei.
They have, however, yet to announce what punishment the teenager will receive.
Huang is also likely not to have had a motorcycle licence as the minimum age for driving tests participation in mainland China is 18.
