Rider Has Very Close Call With Truck After Getting Hit From Behind

Despite being hit from behind, this motorcycle rider in Australia can consider himself extremely fortunate to have avoided a second, and much more serious, impact with that incoming box truck.

This is actually a ridiculous set of events, as it all happened at a very low speed, when the biker braked and the dashcam car just run into him.

If it wasn’t for the video description letting us know what happened in the aftermath of the accident, we would assume that the biker would have exchanged some harsh words with the car’s driver.

Surprisingly, the driver and the rider actually shared a laugh when everything was said and done: “I was the rider, Berington drive and Semple St. The driver was a good help & kind, we made some jokes at the end. Insurance is covering it all.”

That’s probably because a. the rider wasn’t hurt, and b. he missed being hit by that box truck by mere inches. Clearly, apart from luck, this is due to the driver of that truck reacting quickly and steering clear.

It’s great to have a sense of humor about things, though we’re not sure we’d laugh about it if we were in that biker’s position. As for why he came to a complete stop before getting hit, it was probably to give way to that oncoming box truck. The cammer was obviously caught off-guard, but it’s a good thing the rider was fully geared up; and, after all, all is well that ends well.
