The collision occurred in Ottawa, Canada on Saturday and the video shows the cyclist somersault over a car bonnet while the force of the crash sends the bike more than a meter into the air before it slams back to earth.
The couple who recorded the crash took out their dashcam for the very first time that day.
‘I recorded for less than two hours before witnessing this and the footage will be very helpful for the family in the vehicle,’Youtube user MrNaDF wrote on the social video platform.
‘There was actually a ghost car police officer directly on the corner. She witnessed everything and was immediately in position to help.’
‘The rider luckily walked away with a sore hip. The driver and his wife were fine.’
‘Please pay attention while traveling no matter what method of transportation you use. Drive safe, ride safe,’ MrNaDF urged.
In the video, the car recording the dashcam footage is motoring along when a cyclist suddenly crosses right in front.
The driver slams on the breaks and narrowly misses the cyclist but the car next to it crashes straight into them.
