Motorcycle rider crashes into ground after being snagged on ropes hanging from the side of a truck


A motorcycle rider was sent crashing into the ground after getting snagged on ropes hanging from the side of a truck.

The man was weaving through traffic when he ventured too close to the lorry in Bangkok, Thailand, on March 25.

A dashboard camera from a passing car captured the crash, revealing how the rider’s top was caught on pieces of rope that were tying a plastic sheet across the side of the container.

He was flung to the ground but picked himself up and dusted himself down before receiving help from passing drivers. The truck driver also went to help.

Motorist Natthawut Homemak said: ‘I hope the video is a reminder to everyone to be more careful on the road. The rider was fortunately not seriously hurt but his motorbike was scratched.’
