Video: Motorcycle Rider Crashes Through Bicyclists on Mulholland Highway
A video of a motorcycle rider crashing through a pair of bicyclists on a California road has been viewed more than a million times on YouTube since being posted earlier this week.
The shocking video was recorded on April 27 along a stretch of the Mulholland Highway near Los Angeles by videographer Ken Snyder, who posted it on YouTube the following day.
“Cyclists didn’t appear to have serious injuries,” Snyder wrote in the caption to the video. “Motorcycle riders of all skill levels come up here to ride. The rider was not speeding and [was] riding fine until he hit his foot and stood the bike up, causing [it] to go wide. He then target fixated on the cyclist.”
Snyder also posted video of another, less-dramatic solo motorcycle crash on what appears to be the same road.
One YouTube commenter claimed he knew the two cyclists who were hit by the motorcycle.
“This was my friend visiting from England who was struck first,” he wrote. “He’s doing OK today, was discharged from the hospital yesterday with no broken bones.”
The winding, two-lane Mulholland Highway runs for about 50 miles through the Santa Monica Mountains northwest of Los Angeles. According to the Los Angeles Times, three bicyclists were seriously injured when they were involved in a collision with an elderly woman driving an Audi on the dangerous road back in August 2010.
