This dashcam footage from the United States shows a Volkswagen Jetta rear-end a Ford bakkie at a set of traffic lights after a pedestrian walked into the road.

The clip shows a woman entering a pedestrian crossing just as the traffic lights turn green. The driver of the bakkie waits for the woman to cross, but the person behind the wheel of the red Jetta hits the accelerator, thudding into the rear of the Ford.

The bakkie, in turn, almost hits the pedestrian, who then appears to simply walk away.

Watch the video above (we'd suggest dropping the volume, as the driver of the camera-equipped vehicle reacts quite loudly)...
