Stunt bikers deserve kudos for putting their life on the line for our entertainment with high-octane, death-defying feats. They also, no doubt, warrant a lot of medical attention when these stunts go wrong. Sadly this was the case after a stunt rider performing in a live Movie World Australia show ran out of talent on stage, after successfully pulling off wheelies, jumps and a tail-kick for the cheering crowds.
Said biker, however, ended his show by slamming into the side of a car on two wheels and flipping it onto its roof, after impressing the crowds with a wheelie-stoppie combo. We're not sure whether it's the show's car-eographers (sorry) to blame for this bike-car smash or one of the motorists themselves, but we imagine that this meeting of helmet and car was not part of the show.
Thankfully, the 22-year-old rider escaped the incident with nothing more than facial injuries, while the passengers in the car were uninjured. See exactly what happened for yourself in the video below.
