A driver captured the moment several supercars sped past him during an illegal road race - before he passed the wreckages of three just moments later.

It then collided with two more supercars.

Colonel Fabio Saavedra, of the Highway Police of Cundinamarca, said the accident was caused by the excessive speed of the vehicles.

The high-end car then crossed back into its original lane where it collided with the other two luxury cars.
