A red Dodge Viper RT/10 was in a race against a scruffy beige Acura Integra when it struck a lamp-post in Ohio on April 10

The Dodge was racing a scruffy beige Acura Integra, which had the word ‘junk’ written on the windshield

The cars rev their engines as an onlooker shouts: ‘You have to! You have to!’

As the two cars begin racing their tyres screech with smoke erupting from the wheels, while onlookers whoop with excitement.

The red Dodge was in front of the Acura but suddenly cut in front and hit the lamp-post head first.

Although airbags did deploy the diver was able to exit the vehicle by himself and did not appear to be injured.

Luckily there were no pedestrians on the sidewalk when the car mounted and struck the lamp-post.

The footage has been seen hundreds of thousands of times online, with hundreds commenting on it.

Tim Leu commented: ‘If you own a car worth that much and has that much power under the hood, you better know how to drive it…in all instances.

‘Just having a fast car doesn’t mean that you can drive fast without first learning how to drive it.

‘Good luck to the driver in explaining that to his insurance company.’

Meanwhile, another online user said: ‘I don’t feel sorry for this guy! He shouldn’t have been trying to race in the first place. It’s his own fault he totalled his car.

‘What if there was some poor unsuspecting person walking where he crashed at?!

‘He wanted to show off how fast his car was and he ended up getting out of a mangled wreck and was standing there looking like a fool.’
