All it takes is one second of removing your focus off the road for an accident or a near crash to occur. Naturally, the faster you're going, the less time you'll have in your disposal to react and respond to a dangerous situation.
The author of this YouTube video is 'XKotovX' who claims to be the one riding the motorcycle (we have not confirmed this) that rear-ended the Mazda CX-5 crossover on a highway near Fort Collins in Colorado.
In the description, he states: "My motorcycle crash at 140 MPH [225km/h]".
Like many commentators on YouTube, we're also a tad skeptical about the speed claim as it doesn't look like he was going 140mph fast - but nevertheless, if he did indeed live, it's nothing short of a miracle. We're going to leave it at that for now and until we find more details about the incident – if you know or have heard something, send us an email or tell us in the comments.
