A motorcyclist, from England, was flung 15 foot into the air after being hit by a speeding car that came from the wrong side of the road.  

The horrifying footage captured on dash cam of the rash car driver shows the high-powered Subaru car at 70mph losing control and hitting the motorcyclist. The 35-year-old, floor fitter from Barnsley, suffered a broken back, sternum and wrist in the accident.

According to reports in Independent, the biker only survived because he was wearing so much protective gear while his Suzuki K7 bike was completely destroyed. 

The footage was released on Friday, January 10, after car driver, Florian Pratt, of Nottingham, admitted causing serious injury by driving at 70mph in a 60mph speed zone. Pratt, 41, has been jailed for 16 months at Sheffield Crown Court. 

Judge David Dixon said, "Anyone in control of a high-powered sports type car needs to be aware of the vehicle's capability and their own capability. You failed to take any account of the bend."
