Police are hunting for a driver who allegedly reversed into the head of a teenage girl as she lay badly injured in the road.
The 16-year-old, who was part of a motorcycle group, was thrown into the back of a Citroen which was being "driven like a complete idiot", according to a witness.
The car had cut up the girl and her friend, who were on a motorbike when the crash happened, Derbyshire Live reports.
The motorcycle rider, Mike Golden, said the car came to a sudden stop near the Blue Peter pub in Alvaston, Derby, which sent them crashing through the back windscreen.
The incident happened at around 3.45pm yesterday.
The crash took place on Shardlow Road, between the Blue Peter Island and the island for Raynesway.
He said the pair were lying in the road, badly injured and covered in glass, when the driver reversed straight into the head of the girl, who was left unconscious. Luckily, she still had her crash helmet on.
Mr Golden, of Osmaston, said: "It was absolutely horrendous. He was driving like a complete idiot and was cutting me up and didn’t like it when I had originally been in front of him.
"He overtook near the Blue Peter pub and just suddenly came to a halt. I managed to stop but we were sent flying over the handlebars.
"We both went crashing into the back window and ended up on the floor. There was glass everywhere and the pain was excruciating. My friend fell on top of me.
"Suddenly he reversed right back when we were both on the floor and he reversed into her head. Thankfully she was wearing a motorcycling helmet. He then just sped off, leaving us both in a really bad way. She was totally unconscious and could not move. It was very frightening."

He said the police arrived very quickly and they were taken to the Royal Derby Hospital. She regained consciousness but later passed out again. She is still in hospital receiving treatment.
Mr Golden was released around eight hours later and suffered broken ribs, a "smashed up" knee, bad swelling and cuts all over his body.
He said he was "incredibly angry" over the incident. He said: "I think what the man did was absolutely disgusting. He was very impatient and was very angry because he was behind us. He then was driving very dangerously.
"I could not believe it when he came to a sudden halt. I managed to brake before hitting the car but we just went flying into the back of the windscreen. It was surreal. It was a horrible experience and for my friend as well."
Mr Golden was on the way to a meal in Chaddesden with other riders from the East Midlands Riders club when the incident happened. He said the 16-year-old had become a recent member of the group.
The business manager said he was urging members of the public to help trace the driver.
He said: "There will be somebody driving around Derby now with no back windscreen and another window missing which was also smashed in the incident. Somebody will know who is responsible for what happened.
"I would urge them to get in touch with the police. It was an incredibly dangerous thing to do and it could have ended very differently."
A spokeswoman for Derbyshire police said they were called to a collision between a motorbike and what has been reported to them as a blue Citroen car and that the driver of the vehicle had appeared to have left the scene.
She said nobody had been arrested and the force was appealing for anybody who witnessed the incident or has any information to contact them on 101 and quote the number 18000419040.
