When Mason Risser filmed a group of 80 bikers out on the road, he wasn’t expecting to come away with broken bones and thousands of dollars worth of damage.
But that’s exactly what happened when the 22-year old found himself in the middle of a domino-effect pile-up on a busy Arizona road.
The footage shows the terrifying moment Mason’s bike was hit from behind, and several other bikes collide with one another in what could’ve been a fatal accident.
Mason, from Phoenix, Arizona, said: “I was entering the highway when another sportbike locked up his brakes sliding right into the back of me at 60mph. It sent me flying and created a domino effect with the rest of the group.
“I suffered a broken wrist and some compressed vertebrae in my neck. I was out of work for about 4 months.”
Mason, who works as a ramp agent at the airport said that another rider suffered an impaling of his leg due to a bike running into him at a high speed.
He said: “He was in a wheelchair for recovery for quite sometime as well.
“Our group was about 80 people, but there were about five bikes and two or three cars directly involved.
“I was left completely frustrated as I was hit from behind and had no time to react or avoid the situation.
“And the following days were filled with physical pain as well.”
