Moment motorbike sends woman flying

THIS is the astonishing moment a furious motorbike rider smashed into a woman when she ran in front of him to catch a bus.

Shocking dashcam footage shows a motorbike driving behind a white van on a sunny day in London, The Sun reports.


The bike is seen approaching the traffic lights - which indicate green for vehicles - when a young woman is seen making a dash for it across the road.

The footage shows her looking straight at the biker before it smashes into her and she flies across the road.

But incredibly both bike rider and pedestrian appeared unhurt.

The woman picks herself up and brushes herself down as she heads straight off, leaving the bike in the middle of the road.

A male voice can be heard saying in disbelief, "You're kidding?" before she replies saying she has to "run for the bus".

The footage was posted on YouTube where it has racked up nearly 40,000 views under the heading: "Pedestrian 0, me also 0."

The biker added: "Bike didn't suffer much damage other than some bar and engine cover scratches.

"Lady just hopped on the next bus she could and didn't give details."

Social media users reacted with a mixture of outrage - and relief that nothing worse had happened.

"That was ridiculous! Glad you're both all right," one person wrote.

"Can't believe she just fled like that WTF! I thought I heard her say that she's getting on the bus, but seriously?

"She didn't even check if you were OK when it was clearly her fault and you were on the ground … Damn bro, I feel sorry for you, hope you're OK," another wrote.

Others joked it was probably the "most appropriate title" they'd seen for a dashcam video in a while.

"There are no winners in crashes like this," he said. "Glad you and the lady were apparently OK. Shame about the bike but it can be fixed."
