This is the moment a driver reversing away from a crossroads after running a red light accidentally slams into two pedestrians crossing the street behind him.

The clueless motorist from the city of Changchun, capital of north-eastern China’s Jilin Province, unwittingly sped through the junction but stopped in the centre after realising he had ignored the traffic lights.

According to reports, he then began reversing his car, presumably to avoid any traffic fines that might come his way, and he was filmed by a nearby female driver as he tried to stop behind the zebra crossing as he should have done in the first place.

However, the motorist fails to notice the two women walking on the zebra crossing directly behind him, and the video shows his Infiniti Q50 crashing into the back of the victims.

Both women are sent flying into the street as the short clip ends.

Reports said the incident happened at the crossroads of Guigu Street and Feiyu Road.

Authorities have refused to release details about the persons involved but said they were currently investigating the accident.

The two pedestrians are not believed to have been seriously injured.
