Terrible moment Motorcyclist is thrown through the air after a reckless motorist turns in front of him
A SHOCKING VIDEO has revealed the moment a motorcyclist was thrown through the air after a reckless motorist spun in front of him.
Insane dashcam footage and video surveillance of a gas station shows the motorcyclist crashing into the car as the driver turns across a busy street.
The motorcyclist, wearing a white T-shirt and black pants, was seen from the driver’s perspective when he hit the vehicle and was thrown through the air.
Footage was released by a court this week – with the accident having happened in 2020 in Adelaide, South Australia.
The driver rolled over into a wagon wheel before landing on his shoulder and skidding to a halt in the gas station forecourt.
Footage from the gas station showed the sedan waiting to turn right down a side street before meeting the motorcyclist on the main road.
The driver narrowly missed a pole and performed two mid-air rollovers. The driver had 14 broken bones, four fractures, serious head injuries and a punctured lung after the horrific crash, the Advertiser reports.
The biker also posted on social media that he suffered a fractured skull.
The video was uploaded by @DashCamOwnersAu on Twitter – and most viewers were left in shock after seeing the footage.
One said: “Imagine if he had hit that pole he would have either died or been in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. No excuse for driver not seeing driver, clear sunny day, no blind spots.”
Another said: “No matter how many motorcycle accidents I see, I forget them the moment I get on my bike. They will never stop me from driving.”
A third pointed out: “As a driver this is scary and I’m so glad you didn’t hit that bar or hit a curb worse than the ground got you!” said one.”
This comes after a horrific collision in which a motorcyclist was thrown from his bike as a car made a right turn onto an empty road.
And an Audi A5 driver crashed into a motorcycle, sending the driver flying in an alleged tantrum in road traffic.
