Life Video

This is the terrifying moment a Mercedes crashed into a car and motorbike at the same time, sending them flying into a cyclist.

While waiting at an intersection in St Petersburg, Russia, on August 19 one motorist’s dashcam filmed the unfortunate accident.

After waiting patiently, a turquoise car turned left across traffic and was closely followed by a motorbike.

Suddenly a speeding black Mercedes smashed into the back of the car, flinging its tail out backwards and crashing into the bike, sending it and its driver flying.

The motorbike rider was flung across the tarmac and into the path of a waiting cyclist, who was knocked to the ground too.

Incredibly, the driver of the car and the cyclist were able to walk, although clearly carrying injuries as they went to check on the motorbike rider.
