A motorbike rider struggled to brake in time causing it to smash into the back of a car.

Noah Cagle was driving through Madison, Alabama, on July 19 when he merged on to a highway closely followed by a bike.

Having moved into slowing traffic, the motorist had to slow down mere moments after accelerating to meet the 65mph speed limit.

With the bike’s rider having the same idea, his braking came a little too late and despite putting his foot on the tarmac, skidded into the rear bumped of Noah’s Ford Focus ST before falling to the ground.

Noah said: “I was annoyed he’d crashed into me.

“Then I saw his skin was pretty badly torn up from the concrete and went to check.”
