A SHOCKING VIDEO has revealed the moment a motorcyclist was sent hurtling through the air after a reckless car driver turned in front of him.
Insane dash cam footage and CCTV from a petrol station shows the motorcyclist crashing into the car as the driver makes a turn across a busy street.
The motorcyclist, who was wearing a white t-shirt and black trousers, was seen from the driver's perspective as he slammed into the vehicle and was sent flying into the air.
The footage was released by a court this week – with the accident having taken place in Adelaide, South Australia, in 2020.
The rider flipped into a cartwheel before landing on his shoulder and coming to a skidding halt on the petrol station forecourt.
The footage from the petrol station showed the saloon waiting to turn right into a side street, before hitting the motorcyclist on the main road.
