Motorcyclist Jack Sanderson was incredibly lucky to walk away with only minor injuries after his bike crashed on the Cat and Fiddle Road, in Buxton, England.
The accident happened after Sanderson overtook two motorbikes and swerved to avoid an approaching car, as he told the BBC:
” I was too impatient. I should have stayed on the white line, I saw the car, and thought right I’m going to have to go off there.
“I’m just happy to walk away with my life and maybe it could be a lesson to others. If it slows anyone down by just one mph then that’s something.”
Sanderson was thrown from his 600cc Kawasaki bike down a 40 ft embankment. The whole accident was filmed by Sanderson’s helmet camera and he posted the video on YouTube to warn other cyclists and drivers. You might want to skip ahead to around the 2:10 mark.
