Bike/Car Collision Caught On Film. Crazy First-Person View

“Bike crash NYC” is the title of a short YouTube video uploaded today. It was Joseph Vazquez’s very first GoPro video, he says, and it ended with him in the hospital. “I was biking to work on a nice autumn day [and] got hit by a car.” He was taken to the hospital via ambulance and suffered a separated shoulder and a concussion. See the whole scene in chilling point-of-view footage here (go to 0:34 to watch the dramatic crash where Vazquez and his GoPro go quite airborne). Wishing Vazquez a speedy recovery. Riders, be careful out there. —Stephen Regenold

Dang! Hope he recovers fast. Looks painful!

Seriously scared of this happening, but have to ask if this rider was even looking at the traffic, in the footage it seemed that he could have had plenty of time to slow down enough to miss this vehicle…just sayin’…
