Watch how this cyclist escapes death twice riding through high-speed collision


An incredible video showing the moment a cyclist in Russia narrowly missed being caught in a crash between a lorry and a car has emerged online.

There's nothing like a morning cycle to get you set up for the day but when you take to the roads in Russia you need to be extra careful. This cyclist seems to be taking the right approach, he looks both ways before crossing the road and still it's not enough.

The truck driver should have stopped at the junction but when he didn't the truck clips the back end of the red car sending it spinning and the truck carries on into the front wheel of the bicycle.

The cyclist seems fine after the crash, he even goes to help the truck driver.

Remember to wear your helmet and look both ways when out for your next bike ride, you might not be as lucky.
