The cyclist in the video below was riding through a London suburb “to gain some fitness,” he writes on YouTube, when a car going the opposite direction suddenly turned right into the bike lane. The head-on collision that ensued is the stuff of bike-riding nightmares.
“Oh, fuck off!” the helmet cam-wearing rider yells seconds before he’s thrown into the air. After a chaotic second or two he lands on the car’s hood, and slides safely to his feet on the road, without so much as a stumble.
He left the incident with only bruising, and writes that the video helped him secure an insurance claim from the driver.
