Video: Horrifying head-on collision at finishing line leads to 17 cyclists being hospitalised
Crashes occur in cycling... but this head-on impact between two bunches sprinting towards the finish is not like anything we have seen before.
The accident occurred at the end of stage 4 of the Colourful Yunnan Gryffindor in China, leaving 17 of the cyclists needing hospital treatment.
Local media reports suggest that the leading bunch took a wrong route and ended up sprinting towards the finish line in the wrong direction.
The result was cyclist hurtling into each other at speed.
