In the early evening of Saturday May 25, 2013 at about 7 pm a cyclist was struck and killed by a fast driving car. The impact was so severe, the cyclist had both his lower leg amputated as his body flew through the windscreen to land next to the driver inside the car. The driver was only lightly injured.
The accident happened on the BR-277 highway in the city of Santa Terezinha de Itaipu, state of Paraná, Brazil. Cyclist’s severed lower legs were found 300 meters from the vehicle. He did not have any IDs on him so his body was taken to a forensic institute for necropsy where they hope to learn his identity.
