Somewhere in Russia right now, we imagine one fellow has parked his bike outside a newsagent and is putting all of his rubles on a lottery ticket.
That man? The lucky so-and-so in this clip, who can be seen pleasantly tootling his steel frame along a pedestrian crossing when a lorry and red saloon car smash into each other at high-speed, seemingly sandwiching him between the automobiles as they career out of control.
Incredibly, the cyclist, almost slowing down and curling up into a defensive ball, remained untouched, like some greater power had decided to give him a free pass as the avalanche of destruction went on around him. That or he’s a missing member of the X-Men.
As to who was at fault for the crash, surely that junction is missing a painted line? We know the Russians are about as well known for their road safety as they are being teetotal, but that is utterly lapse.
