Biker throws himself on ground and pretends to be badly injured in bizarre crash footage
A biker who walked away from a crash with a van, suddenly dives on the floor and pretends to be injured in bizarre footage.
CCTV shows the motorcyclist suddenly darting out of a narrow side street into a junction and the silver van clipping the back of the motorcycle.
The driver was unable to slow down or swerve out the way and ends up knocking the biker to the ground, but the vehicle also careers off the road and overturns while crashing into a concrete wall.
The biker can be seen standing back up immediately after the collision, seemingly unharmed, but he then has a sudden change of heart after seeing the state of the silver van.
As a witness riding a pedicab surveys the crash site in eastern China’s Jinzhai county, the biker suddenly rushes back to his motorcycle and lies on the ground pretending to be seriously hurt.
Fortunately, neither biker nor van driver came to any serious harm during the collision, with the authorities saying they have since settled the matter privately.
Officer Meng Zhenhan said: “The two collided at a crossroads when the van driver was unable to avoid [the motorcycle].”
He added: “The rider suffered minor injuries and actually stood up afterwards, but he quickly realised the van had come off second best – and was afraid of paying damages – so he gave it some thought and decided it was best to lie down.”
It is understood that no charges were filed against either party.
