Motorcyclist has lucky escape from having head crushed by a car

A motorcyclist is lucky to be alive after coming off his bike into the path of an oncoming car.

The footage is taken from a CCTV camera located on a busy junction in China.

The motorbike can be seen traveling on the outside of a line of traffic waiting at a set of traffic lights.


Just as the biker begins to approach the beginning of the queue, a motorist in a black SUV pulls out into the next lane.

Overcorrecting himself, the biker attempts to brake hard and throw the bike away from the car, but begins to lose control in the process.

The biker falls over and into the path of an oncoming car. Luckily it just manages to dodge him – the most shocking part being how close his head was to being underneath the wheels of the MPV.

The biker can be seen showing some cuts and bruises later on but did not suffer any major injuries.
