This is a GoPro hetmetcam video showing a cyclist being almost run over by a semi truck in São Paulo (Brazil).
The cyclist was part of a small group riding on the shoulder when the truck suddenly invaded the narrow strip of paved road and hit him.
The cyclist was taken to a hospital but only suffered bruises to the leg and dislocation. The truck driver stopped just ahead to help him, and said a strong wind pushed his semi to the side, causing the accident. It was nice of him to stop, but the excuse is ridiculous. The video portrays a picture of a bright sunny day with trees barely moving. Still, if there was a sudden gust of air, it wouldn’t have been the semi that gets moved. I think the driver dozed off for a second…
Although unlucky to get hit, the cyclist was lucky to escape getting run over. It was a close brush with death.
