Offbeat Video

By Curtis Mitchell


A distracted scooter driver careered into the back of a car after failing to see it stop in traffic.

A driver – who wises to remain anonymous – captured the footage on his dashboard camera while driving along the Ayalon highway in Tel Aviv, Israel, on June 19.

In the footage the driver of the white Mercerdes, believed to be in his early thirties, brakes as he approaches traffic, but the man on the scooter behind appears to be distracted before smashing into the rear of the car.

The dashcam owner said: “The driver stopped and told the scooter driver he had footage before giving him his contact details. He then called an ambulance for the scooter rider.

“The rider suffered minor injuries amazingly and the driver was fine, The scooter was quite severely damaged, and the car only had rear bumper damaged.

“An ambulance did arrive at the scene and quite a few people stopped to help.”
