A young cyclist in the UK caused a car to crash on Sunday, March 24 after carelessly crossing a road.
The accident occurred in Greater Manchester in the UK and the scene was captured by the exterior security camera of a local resident.
Footage shows two young boys slowly riding their bicycles along the sidewalk. Moments before the crash, one of the boys can be seen picking up an object on the pavement and quickly throwing it to the ground. The same boy then proceeds to swerve aggressively into the road and tries to make his way through the crossing.
However, a light blue Ford Focus was traveling along the road and the driver was forced to swerve out of the way to avoid making contact with the young cyclist. The motorist slammed into a large sign post while the two boys on bikes fled the scene.
Deadline News reports that the driver suffered minor injuries to his shoulder and hip.
Speaking with local media, the owner of the house opposite the incident, Jaine Rowley, said the crash occurred at 7:15 p.m. and revealed that the young cyclists have made a habit of causing chaos for locals.
“These two have been causing trouble for months now. Abusing walkers, dodging traffic, damaging property. If their parents have not seen this video yet then there’s something wrong! Hopefully, they will do the right thing,” Rowley said.
If the driver of the Focus hadn’t been so quick to react, one of the boys could have been seriously injured.
For the sake of the driver, we hope this CCTV footage helps them prove to their insurance company that they’re not to blame.
