John O’Neil, a driving instructor from the UK, recently bumped into a bicyclist in Liverpool whilst on the job with one of his students.
This is his story, as he told it on YouTube where he uploaded the dash-cam video:
“I am a driving instructor,” writes O’Neil.” Edward was on his first lesson, we parked up to discuss his progress. We then heard the crash as the cyclist rode into us. I got out to check if he was ok and if there was any damage. The car didn’t appear to be damaged but I noticed later a dent on the car which I had not seen. I was distracted by the cyclist whose face was pouring with blood you can see on full video. I advised him to sit down but he said he lived nearby and would cycle home.”
The moral of the story? Always keep your head up and your eyes on the road because you never know what lies ahead…
