While not at fault IMO he was going a bit fast for in town and through an intersection.
He's very lucky he was not killed, hopefully both he and the young driver with a permit learned something there.
I would recommend all the newbies here watch this and learn as well, a real seasoned rider probably would have slowed down and seen this might happen and avoided the collision.
When I approach an intersection like that I'm looking right at that driver to try and figure out what they'll do and if they see me or not.
