Oh, the Horror…Airborne Styrofoam Causes Multiple Motorcycles to Crash Down on Texas Highway

|

Styrofoam may be as light as a feather but try dealing with a board coming your way on the highway...while riding on a motorcycle and it's a completely different story, as a group of bikers found out earlier this week.

This incident, which was recorded by one of the riders equipped with a GoPro helmet camera, took place in McAllen, Texas.

"Thanks to some idiots who didnt tie down their box of styro foam it flew out of a trailer and hit 1 guy he fell and the rider behind him clipped his bike and fell aswell," said one of the bikers, nicknamed "Astat4" on YouTube.

The rider went into more details on a forum posting at Stuntride:

"This was our weekly ride that we do ever wednesday with our crew, my friend was recording with his go pro and i got the footage from him, we were going for our ride on the highway and there was this truck hauling a trailer with boxes of styra foam and they wernt strapped down, 1 box flew out and one member (250) couldnt dodge it hit the box and went down, the other rider (R6) clipped his bike and fell aswell the the ride on the250 is the body on the left and the body on the right side rolling is the r6 rider, also our leader of the crew."

"Both guys were taken to the hospital and were out the next day with some road rash and a few bruises, the 250 was totaled and the r6 was saved cause of the crash cage it had."

It remains unknown if the driver responsible for the accident was caught.
