Jacek Szafranski, victim
The collision came as the result of a five-hour dangerous driving spree by the teenager, who only had a provisional licence, Bournemouth Crown Court heard.
Jurors were told how he drove the wrong way down a dual carriageway in a Vauxhall Tigra, jumped red lights, dangerously overtook cars and nearly hit a pedestrian crossing the road in the hours leading up to the crash.
Then, at 04:45 on October 27 last year, Mr Szafranski was cycling to work at UK Mail in Poole when George ran a red light – smashing into the side of him.

The 19-year-old fled the scene without checking on Mr Szafranski. He later abandoned his car before it was recovered by police.
Mr Szafranski, a Polish national, suffered a fractured left ankle and three broken toes, as well as cuts to his head, thigh, calf and foot and a collapsed lung.
The court was told how George was on bail for a previous bout of dangerous driving just 13 days earlier when he again drove the wrong way down the A338.

Stuart Ellacott, prosecuting, said Mr Szafranski recalls the noise of a car being driven at speed moments before the crash.
Mr Ellacott said: "He looked to his right and said 'to my horror I saw a car travelling at a very fast speed straight towards me. I had no time to react or alter my course to get out of the way.
"It didn't appear to be slowing down. I could see the driver and the front of the car hit my right leg and I was thrown into the air’.”
"Mr Szafranski couldn't live in his flat on his own and relatives have come over from Poland to help look after him.
"He is suffering sleepless nights and said 'every time I close my eyes the accident scene haunts me'.
The Polish national suffered life-changing injuries
Nick Robinson, defending, admitted his client was the “worst person to be behind a wheel".
He said George, who has ADHD, was very sorry for his actions and had written a letter to the victim.
"He is traumatised by what he did. He is incredibly tearful whenever he talks about it,” Mr Robinson said.
"He is someone who has a complete inability to think through the consequences of his actions, he lives in the adrenaline of the moment.
"He is perhaps but he has learnt from this experience. One positive from this is that he will not get behind a wheel again.”
