Terrifying moment motorcyclist is hit by flying truck in horror crash that killed SUV driver | The Sun
THIS is the terrifying moment a motorcyclist is hit by a flying truck in a horror crash that killed an SUV driver.
The biker was catapulted off his bike while waiting at a pair of busy traffic lights in Malibu, California.
Incredible footage shows the pick-up truck flip on its side before slamming into the rider after it was nicked by a black SUV.
The horror collision took place on November 14 and led to the death of the SUV driver, who's believed to have stolen the vehicle before crashing it, according to LA county police.
In the clip, the rider, who survived the freak accident, patiently waits to turn left off a busy highway.
Moments later a black 2017 Lexus NC speeds directly onto the highway, skimming a large grey pickup truck in the process.
