This frightful video shows a ZX-10R rider hit a trailer pulling off the road ahead of him. The sickening impact sends the rider flying into the air like a cannonball. He lands on the road several yards ahead, but incredibly, he survived the crash.
Warning: Viewer discretion is very strongly advisedMSN Now comments this is "one of the scariest crashes you'll ever see." According to Hell For Leather Magazine, the rider was participating in a group motorcycle ride, but, possibly because of inexperience, he did not take a cue from fellow riders in front of him who slowed down.
The video shows the trailer making a right turn. The rider coming up from behind did not notice the trailer pulling off the road. He speeds past fellow bikers and crashes at high speed into the trailer. The YouTube user, drramascrr, who uploaded the video comments:
"Out for a group ride. I had never met the guy who was riding the ZX-10 before. As I was slowing down he was still going fast and said he never saw the trailer. The gopro camera is mounted to the front of my Ducati 848 Evo."Drramascrr reports, amazingly, that the rider survived the crash with only a broken arm and legs. Hell for Leather Magazine comments laconically: "There’s no way this guy is ever getting back on a bike."
