This dashcam footage from Australia shows the driver of what appears to be a V8-powered Holden Ute (or what we knew as the Chevrolet Lumina Ute here in South Africa) lose control of the bakkie while attempting to blast through a traffic circle.

The clip shows the green bakkie come speeding through the circle, with its driver seemingly losing the back end on the way out. The Ute then slams into a pole with devastating results.

Thankfully, both occupants appeared uninjured, having quickly hopped out of the mangled machine.

Watch the footage above and take it easy out there…
