Speeding Chinese Driver Skids On Wet Road And Rams Biker Off Motorcycle
This is the moment an out-of-control motorist skids on a wet road and rams a biker off their motorcycle.
The accident took place in the city of Liupanshui in the Chinese province of Guizhou at around 11.40am on Sunday, 12th December.
In the footage, the motorcyclist is seen waiting at the traffic lights as a white car appears on the screen, taking a left turn at high speed.
The car skids along the wet road surface and the driver apparently loses control, careering into the biker and shunting the front of another vehicle.
Meanwhile, the biker is knocked into a slip lane and their head is nearly crushed by a passing car. The driver manages to stop before they apparently run over the motorcyclist’s outstretched hand.
The biker is seen gingerly getting to their feet as the driver of the shunted car gets out of his vehicle and the footage ends.
According to local media, the female motorist, whose surname was given as Yang, tried to speed past the traffic light while it was changing, but lost control of her vehicle on the wet road.
The police said no one was injured in the incident and that Yang is to be held fully responsible for causing the accident.
Netizen ‘Artsumbell’ commented: “I really want to praise the driver of the black car who braked in time. If they didn’t, the motorcyclist’s hand…”
In 2019, nearly 248,000 traffic accidents with nearly 63,000 deaths were recorded in China, according to the country’s National Bureau of Statistics.
