This is the shocking moment a motorbike rider fell off and almost had his head crushed by a pickup truck but was saved by his helmet.

Dashcam footage shows the rider in a pink raincoat being knocked over by the ladder that was sticking out from a truck in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, on October 20.

The man fell straight to the ground with his head laying right beneath the silver pickup truck’s front wheel but his helmet wedged it in.

Onlooker Jurairat Sribongkot said: ‘The motorbike rider was lucky he was wearing a helmet. Without that, he would have had his head squashed.’

The pickup truck immediately stopped, saving the man’s life who was unscathed from the incident.
