The incident took place in the administrative centre of Anand in the district of the same name in the westernmost Indian state of Gujarat, and was filmed by a CCTV camera.

In the footage, a stationary auto rickshaw is seen parked to the side of the road as the driver takes out a jacket to put on.

As he fumbles with the item of clothing, a speeding car appears and hits the central reservation like a ramp.

The vehicle takes off like something from ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ and flips over in the air before crashing down on its roof.

As the car rolls along the road, the rickshaw driver watches in disbelief.

He jumps into his rickshaw and drives off in the direction of the smashed-up car.

According to local media, 35-year-old motorist Ami Darji was on his way home when the accident took place.

His car erupted in flames after hitting the central reservation and passersby managed to pull Darji out of the burning vehicle.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital, but reportedly succumbed to his injuries shortly afterwards.

The local police have yet to confirm whether they are investigating the accident.
