Shocking footage shows the moment a distracted van driver runs straight through a red light while looking at his phone – narrowly missing a motorbike as it pulls out.
Spotted in Birmingham on Wednesday the driver of the white Ford transit van is totally unaware he has almost caused a serious collision.
Helmet-cam footage shows the filmer – on a motorcycle – approach a right turn where he has right of way, after waiting for a green light.
The audacious driver is completely oblivious to the road layout and charges through.
The disparaged biker can be heard shouting ‘Where you going you f*****’ b******’ as he is almost side swiped off the road.
Upon closer inspection of the footage, the driver appears to be his phone and paying attention to the device rather than the road, ultimately putting lives in danger.
The filmer commented on Facebook: ‘If a kid was crossing to the right of me it would be a manslaughter charge.’
Approaching the junction where he has right of way to make a right turn after waiting at the traffic lights the biker is expecting the white van to stop
You f****** b******!’ shouts the motorbiker as the Birmingham van driver runs a red light while on the phone
No signs of stopping: The van driver seems unaware any sort of altercation has just taken place
