This shocking footage shows the moment he was catastrophically injured by a driver distracted by his mobile phone.

He remains in hospital 11 months later and has to be fed through a tube, the South Wales Evening Post reported .

Ryan Niner pleaded guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving They hope motorists will remember it next time they are tempted to use a mobile while at the wheel. Niner, from Port Talbot, Wales, pleaded guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving. At his sentencing hearing today, Swansea Crown Court heard that on the morning of January 28 Mr Bamsey was walking from his home to Port Talbot town centre to buy Welsh cakes and a paper. By 10.15am he was in Station Road — as Niner drove along the street in his Mini Cooper. Catherine Richards, prosecuting, told the court records showed Niner made a call from his mobile to his mother — which went straight to voicemail — and he terminated the call. Arthur Bamsey was badly injured during the incident Seconds later he drove into Mr Bamsey as he crossed the road by the old police station. Niner, who was 18 at the time, applied the brakes of his car before the collision — but it was too late to stop. Former Tata steelworks rigger Mr Bamsey was thrown into the air by the force of the impact, landing on the car and then falling to the road. Passers-by — including an off-duty nurse who was cycling along the street — stopped to help, and the gravely injured man was rushed to University Hospital of Wales. Mr Bamsey spent five months in intensive care in Cardiff before being transferred to Neath Port Talbot Hospital, where he remains. The collision was caught on camera The court heard he was able to leave hospital for a few hours on a Sunday to spend time with family "but needs help with most of his personal care". The court heard Mr Bamsey is barely able to communicate and requires a tube to be fed, while his personality has also changed. The barrister added: "His family are hopeful that he will ultimately come home". The court heard details of a victim impact statement from Mr Bamsey’s son, Dai, a manager at Tata steel. He said prior to the collision his dad had been incredibly fit, working out with weights in the garage, and walking for miles over the beach, hills and parks. He described his dad as the "go-to guy" for the family, and as a man who doted on his grandchildren. The driver was using his phone at the time Read More ‘Loving’ dad tragically dies from deadly brain tumour just months after son’s birth Dai had been at a meeting in Tata on the day of the collision and had been caught up in the traffic jam caused by the closure of Station Road — unaware of the cause of the disruption. The court heard that an interim driving ban had been imposed on Niner after he had entered his guilty plea. But on Tuesday this week he was stopped by police in Water Street in Port Talbot while driving, and was found to be in possession of cannabis, a knuckle-duster and £1,600 in cash. Tom Scapens, representing Niner, said the events of January 28 and their aftermath had had a profound effect on the teen. He said the defendant had been diagnosed with severe obsessive-compulsive disorder, and that in the opinion of a psychologist he was either suffering from or on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Mr Bamsey’s life has been turned upside down, the court heard The barrister added his client wanted to apologise to Mr Bamsey and his family for what he had done. Judge Paul Thomas QC said people who used their phone while driving were a "public menace". He said Niner would have had ample chance to see the pedestrian crossing the road ahead of him had he not been distracted. The judge told the defendant: "Mr Bamsey’s life has been turned upside down because of your stupidity in using a mobile phone while driving." Niner was sentenced to a total of 20 months in a young offenders institution — half of which he will spend in custody. He was also banned from driving for two years after his release.

"With the increase in mobile technology and social media, it is believed that a third of all motorists text, make a call or access social media while driving. "We would ask all drivers to consider their actions and the consequences of the choices which they make — the only safe option is to turn your phone off and put it out of sight."
