This dashcam footage from Australia shows a Ford Ranger slam into a stationary Volkswagen Golf waiting at a set of traffic lights.

The video shows the camera-equipped vehicle coming to a stop behind a white Golf. But a Ranger bakkie then enters the frame, heading out of its lane and thudding violently into the hatchback just as the lights turn green.

The Ranger wobbles to a halt at the next intersection, with the Golf following suit. Here's hoping nobody was seriously injured in the collision.

Watch the footage above, but be warned it contains a spot of strong language...
