My first thought was India....but then as you said...he lost his helmet. Indians dont wear helmets. Has to be somewhere in the EU given the license plates. I would like to know more about the video. Even if he survived the initial tire hit....his head slammed the asphalt on the bounce as he was sliding. If he did survive....he is messed up for life.
And of course, I typed this before looking up the story. Happened in 2015 in Brazil.
This the horrific moment a motorcyclist is killed when a runaway car tyre flies through the air and hits him in the head.
A biker travelling behind the victim filmed the horrific scenes from a camera on his crash helmet.
The terrible accident happened on a busy dual-carriageway on the outskirts of Brasilia, the capital of Brazil.
The biker’s body was flung onto a grassy hard shoulder while his motorcycle crashed to the ground several hundred metres up the road.
A motorcyclist was killed in Brazil after being hit in the head by a tyre that flew off a car travelling in the opposite direction
Police have seized the Volkswagon Golf the tyre flew off and say the driver could be charged with manslaughter if an investigation points to negligence.
Jorge Ademir, who filmed the sickening incident including the aftermath of the collision when he raced to the victim’s aid, said: “He didn’t have time to react to react. It all happened so fast.
“He was already on the ground when I realised he had been hit by something.
“I didn’t fully understand what had really happened until I looked at the images.”
Paramedics tried to save the biker but he died within an hour of being hit.
The 42-year-old victim has not been named.
Mr Ademir said: “Motorists were arguing with members of the emergency services because they were trying to get through the area where the air ambulance was going to land.
“It was a surreal situation seeing them having to deal with that while they were trying to save the biker.”
