Dramatic video has emerged of a motorcyclist getting hit from behind by a P-plate driver.
Dashcam footage shows the rider in the middle of the road waiting to turn right at a T-intersection before a white Hyundai Getz ploughs into him.
The impact causes the rider to backflip and crash onto the road.
The incident occurred between Maud Street and Basil Street in Mayfield West, north of Newcastle on Thursday afternoon.
An oncoming blue Mazda narrowly avoids running over the rider, as it passes from the opposite direction.

Miraculously the rider was able to walk away from the frightening crash without serious injury, but his motorcycle was largely destroyed.
The Hyundai driver was also uninjured but the car suffered damage to the front end.
It’s unclear where the crash occurred or if any charges have been laid.
The video which was posted to the Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook page was flooded with comments from users.
‘I hope the motorbike rider was OK [sic],’ one user wrote.
‘he’s lucky to be alive, some drivers really need to wake up to themselves!!,’ another said.
‘So lucky he didn’t go under that blue Mazda,’ another wrote.
