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
