Motorcycle Huge Crash at High Speed [Video]
text size: A- A+
Here we are again on a Russian highway. It looks like dashboard cameras really caught in Russia, as the internet is literally flooded with footage of various traffic incidents. This is how we've stumbled upon this rather violent movie of a biker who travels at a high speed and ends up very bad.
We could tell that the guy was away over the speed limit and even above the self-preservation speed limit, as the car drives at around 100 km/h (62 mph) after slowing down from 125 km/h (77.7 mph), behind the white/ silver car, also slowing down because of some vehicles stopped ahead.
The bike passes quite fast, and we'd estimate around 160 km/h (100 mph) or more, with little-to-no braking at all, missing the gape between the two cars in front and being violently thrown through the air across multiple lanes.
Now, some say that even if the unfortunate rider could have squeezed through the two cars, his speed would have had him crash in other vehicles ahead, failing to slow down to a more manageable speed. The car on the first lane almost runs him and his thrashed bike over, but thanks to lower speed and awareness, this new crash is avoided.
Watch out for traffic ahead when riding fast, as the highways aren't quite as safe as we sometimes believe they are.
