Rehman Afzal, 28, instead phoned his family while 40-year-old chef Dan Roberts lay dying and was heard saying: "It's not good. It is not good."
At Glasgow Sheriff Court, Afzal was convicted of causing the death of Mr Roberts by inconsiderate driving on Paisley Road West, Glasgow, on January 15 last year.
The jury deleted the part of the charge that related to careless driving.
Passing a sentence of 300 hours' community service yesterday, Sheriff John Beckett, QC, told Afzal he was driving below the standard expected of a capable driver.
He said: "The fact you caused death is a fact I must take into account."
Afzal was also disqualified from driving for a year and must re-sit a test at the end of that period.
