Dramatic dash-cam footage has been uploaded online of an early morning crash in Aberdeen.
The clip shows the car involved travelling along King Street seconds before it crashes into traffic lights and a bollard.
The vehicle also crashed into a tree.
Dash-cam footage appears to show another vehicle travelling in another lane alongside edging closer before the car came off the road.
The incident involving a white Volkswagen Golf happened shortly before 6am and caused traffic delays.

The dash-cam was fitted inside the Golf that came off the road.
Emergency services were called to the scene and one lane was closed down while they dealt with the collision.
A police spokesman said: “Police units and a council recovery vehicle were at the scene.
“One vehicle struck a bollard, a traffic light and a tree.”
The white VW Golf was severely damaged in the crash.
Debris was left scattered on the road along with car parts and shards of glass.
Police last night were unable to confirm if anyone had been charged in connection with the crash.
The crash comes just a day after a competition was launched to implement a safe cycling path on King Street.
The Aberdeen Cycle Forum are currently seeking designs for a segregated bike path, which would see a separate lane created for cyclists and a barrier between traffic.
Campaigns and community secretary for Aberdeen Cycle Forum Rachel Martin described cycling down King Street as “pretty scary.”
She said: “At a minimum, our cycle path would run from the university to Castlegate which would join the Union Street path and go all the way to Holburn Street.
“It’s not continuous on King Street and there’s buses, which is the same problem we have on Union Street.
“I have cycled down King Street before and it’s pretty scary.
“We would like to see a segregated bike path, with a barrier between the path and cars.”
Residents and other interested parties will be given the chance to give their views on the proposals as part of the consultation.
