A learner driver hit a cyclist and in Manchester and came to a halt about 60 metres after the initial collision, crashing through a hedge.

The dramatic picture shows how the BMW ended up in shrubbery. Officers said the car hit a cyclist and then veered off the carriageway with the shocked cyclist still on the bonnet.

“Driver cutting the corner collided with a cyclist indicated by the arrow, left the carriageway with cyclist still on the bonnet before stopping in a garden 60m on,” read the caption on the photo.

A GMP spokesman later confirmed that the cyclist suffered only minor injuries in the collision. No-one else was hurt.

The police also say that the driver is being prosecuted for driving without due care and attention.
