This is the moment a hit-and-run driver rams his car into a motorcycle carrying a pregnant woman sending both her and the biker flying.
The scene was recorded by another driver’s dashboard camera in the town of Puchong in western Malaysia’s Selangor State as the Proton Sage Iswara car and the motorbike were driving side-by-side.
In the video, the Proton driver appears to be overtaking the motorbike when the motorist suddenly veers to the left, smashing into the front of the bike.

The biker and the passenger, reportedly a pregnant woman, are sent crashing to the ground in the collision as the Proton driver speeds away.
A person in the car recording the scene can be heard screaming as they come to a stop to help the fallen bikers.
Local media report the video was recorded by Mariam Rahmat but neither the victims nor the driver of Proton have been identified in reports. It is unclear if the police are investigating the incident.
The Proton Saga Iswara (also known as the Proton Mpiin the United Kingdom) was launched in August 1992 and it remained in production until 2003, with exports to Europe ending in 1996.
