Video: Head-On Crash (Bike Goes Flying)

Recently, we posted a video of a cyclist in a hit and run accident in London. It happened again, and this new video shows the incident in a scary point-of-view perspective.

“The second time I rode into London in an effort to gain some fitness, rather than take the train, ended like this,” the poster wrote.

It appears the driver just didn’t see him, turning right into the rider. The biker reports he was traveling about 22mph through Romford in a drizzly rain. “I had no chance of stopping,” he said. “After a very uncomfortable trip to the hospital in a neck brace and spinal board and various x-rays I escaped with just bruising. So I consider myself lucky.”

He reported that the driver was apologetic but disputed the insurance claim against her for causing the crash. We hope the video proves otherwise.
