Motorcyclist Somersaults Out of Traffic Accident (Video)
[youtube]–KoDKQFhs4[/youtube] Motorcyclist Somersaults Out of Traffic Accident landing on his feet in China.The video of a crash between a motorcycle and a pickup truck caught on surveillance camera has been widely circulating in Chinese cyberspace.
The fast moving motorcycle is going straight through an intersection in Wenzhou City, Zhejiang Province, when a left turning pickup truck from the opposite direction runs the red light, and the motorcycle crashes into the right rear of the pickup truck.
Instantly, the truck spins out of the picture, leaving only the severely damaged motorcycle in the middle of the road–and no motorcyclist in sight.
A closer look at the video reveals that at the moment of the crash a young man without helmet is ejected from the motorcycle. He flies over the pickup with a front somersault and lands on his feet.
A few seconds later, the young man reappeared in the video. He walks back and looks at his motorcycle while wiping off the dirt from his clothes, apparently very disappointed at the damage to his bike.
He walks away, leaving his motorcycle behind.
Chinese bloggers have named him the Wenzhou gymnast. They say he should get a high score for his perfect landing.
The accident happened on the evening of June 21 according to a report by Zhejiang Online. Police recently made the video public hoping to find the motorcyclist. However, his identity and why he left the scene without reporting to the police remains a mystery.
