VIDEO: Motorcycle rider flips on top of car, apparently unharmed

A dashcam video posted on YouTube Tuesday appears to show a motorcycle rider rear-ending a moving car and surviving.

The only description of the video is in Bulgarian and says "accident rider."  News reports indicate the crash occurred in Belarus.

The video, taken from a car in the left lane of a freeway bridge, shows a BMW sedan ahead of it moving from the right lane to the left lane. A motorcycle rider, traveling much faster than the BMW, slams into the rear of the sedan, catapulting the rider into the air in a somersault.

The rider lands feet first on the roof of the BMW as the car with the video camera runs over part of the motorcycle wreckage before both cars slow down.

The Suzuki he was riding was reportedly traveling at 53 mph (85 kp/h) at the time of the collision.

"He was incredibly lucky," local government spokesman Eugene Zilina told local newspaper Nasha Niva. The crash took place on a bridge over the Dnieper River, according to Zilina.
