Helmet cam captures moment car drives over motorbike (video)

A horrified motorcylist had to watch while a student driver ran over his bike and completely crushed it.

The man captured the incident on his helmet cam, and it shows how the car comes reversing straight at him at an intersection.

The biker has no choice but to jump off his ride, which is then subsequently squashed by the red Toyota.

The video was originally uploaded by Devid Ava, although we saw it first at the Mirror.

While waiting at an intersection, the rider has to watch while a Toyota RAV4 backs over his cycle. He was lucky not to suffer any injuries in the freak occurrence, but the bike sustained serious damage.

"The rider laid out the whole story on Reddit and explained that the person behind the wheel of the RAV4 was a student driver. The motorcyclist says that he was aware of the crossover, but never expected it to reverse at high speed through of the intersection.

"With no time to really think, he chose to bail off the bike, and the decision might have saved his life.

"'The video ends where it does because there is absolutely nothing exciting happening afterwards,' the rider wrote on Reddit. There wasn't any yelling afterward; they just talked. Police gave the student driver a ticket when they arrived."
