Piasecke can then be seen callously abandoning his friend with life-changing injuries at the scene on Cotmanhay Road, in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
A court heard the victim was left with a pelvic fracture, multiple leg breaks, a bleed on the brain and may never walk again.
Piasecke, of Ilkeston was arrested but after being released on bail he went on a drug dealing spree which saw him take selfies with bags of white powder.
He was later found with £500 cash and multiple mobile phones, as well as over £1,000 worth of heroin and crack cocaine.
Piasecke went on to admit causing serious injury by dangerous driving, driving without insurance or a licence, and possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
He was jailed for six years at Derby Crown Court on August 12.
Sergeant Matt Edwards, of Derbyshire Police said afterwards: ‘Piasecke showed little remorse after the crash in which his passenger was very seriously hurt.
‘He continued to engage in criminality after his release on bail, by dealing class A drugs across Ilkeston.
‘I am pleased that he is now behind bars and that Ilkeston’s streets are significantly safer as result.’
Following the crash, Piasecke ran off leaving his friend with major injuries
