'Boy Racer' Crashes Car On Same Day He Picks It Up From The Garage

'Boy Racer' Crashes Car On Same Day He Picks It Up From The Garage

A 'boy racer' tried to take a corner too fast and crashed into a post - on the same day he picked it up from the garage.

A passing motorist caught the moment the young man got out of his motor to examine the damage, before screaming: "I have just got it fucking fixed today."

Dashcam footage shared by the former lorry driver, who wishes not to be named, shows the silver Ford Fiesta accelerating at a set of traffic lights, in Bicester, Oxfordshire.

But as the bloke speeds off round the corner, his front left wheel clips the kerb, causing his car to veer to the right and plough into the post.

The driver then tries to get out of his car several times before slamming the door shut and cursing the accident.

The eye-witness said: "I've got a funny sense of humour so when I saw all this unfold I laughed.

"My dashcam is on all the time, I've had it two years and it's never caught a thing until now.

"It's been unplugged a couple of times and that's usually when the idiots turn up. As an ex-lorry driver you notice other people's bad driving.

"He wasn't indicating to go right or left and was sat in the middle at a funny angle.

"The road conditions were wet, which probably contributed towards it happening, but more the fact that he was accelerating while he was turning.

"He was getting stressed while trying to get out of the car then walked to the front of the car and said 'I've only just paid to have it fixed today'."

The driver added: "It's a bit like self-inflicted road rage having a go at yourself like that."

According to the witness, the unlucky guy had been collecting an item from Argos inside Sainsbury's, and his passengers couldn't have been more than 19 years old.

But he's sure he will learn from his mistakes.

He said: "Most boys have been boy racers - they've been through it. The lad only looks around 18/19 years old, we've all been there, I just think he's more inexperienced than anything else.

"Where he's hit the post it's pushed the wing back meaning the door won't open, which is why he struggled to get out, though no-one was hurt.

"When you can hear horns beeping that was cars that were coming from the other way that were rubbernecking and stuck in the traffic lights.

"They couldn't get through because the car was in the way.

"I should imagine he's definitely learned a lesson, that must have hurt when he hit that.

"My advice to him would be don't accelerate going into a corner - only accelerate when you come out."
