Did anybody witness this shocking collision between a cyclist and a car in Romford?

Footage posted to Youtube shows a cyclist careering with a car bonnet and flipping over onto the windshield after the vehicle took a turn across the bike’s path.

Note: the video contains swearing.

The bike is seen in the air before losing its front wheel. The cyclist somehow lands on his feet and walks off apparently without serious injury.

The footage, taken from the biker’s helmet-mounted camera, was posted to Youtube approximately a month ago.

The Recorder would like to speak to the cyclist. If you know him, or saw the incident, please contact Sam on 0208 477 3892 or sam.blewett@archant.co.uk
