Cyclist Gets Hit by Car, Flies through the Air, But Somehow Lands on His Feet


(Video Link)

YouTube member CycleJack was pedaling through Romford, Essex, UK on a wet day. He was traveling about 22 MPH. A car cut across his path and he hit the fender. CycleJack flew over the car, head over heels, but landed neatly on his feet. It was an impressive bit of unintentional acrobatics caught on camera.

And it's a good thing that CycleJack was wearing a camera. The driver tried to dispute that she was at fault. The video footage took care of that problem:

Safe to say the video has saved me a lot of hassle and 3 weeks later the cheque has already arrived from the insurance company.

Content warning: CycleJack uses a bit of foul language when the car hits. But who can blame him?

It's a visual indicator to drivers that they're approaching or in a pedestrian crossing zone and they need to proceed with caution. Passing other cars in this zone is forbidden.

Exactly what I was going to say. He didn't land on his feet, he landed on his back on the hood of the car and slid down onto his feet.

Thank goodness the guy's okay. Unbelievable that wench would almost run a guy over then claim it was his fault. Horrible.
