A motorcyclist survived a head-on crash at high speed into a fire truck near Bloomington, California, and dramatic footage of the accident was captured on his GoPro camera.
The clip was posted originally by KABC-TV News in Los Angeles and later picked up by Fox News and aired on “Fox & Friends” on Friday.
A motorcycle ride came to a dramatic end when the cyclist crashed head-on into a Los Angeles County Fire Department truck on a mountain road in the Angeles National Forest.
GoPro video shows 24-year-old Jesse Lopez racing up Glendora Ridge Road on April 1 with another biker, when he came to a blind curve and crashed into the firetruck. His GoPro camera went flying off his helmet and captured him lying on the ground as it flew in the air.
“Especially head-on, you don’t think many people would survive that. Guess he’s lucky to be alive,” his friend Angelo Guerrero said.
Lopez told the station that the video seemed so unreal that watching it was like watching someone else.
“When I saw what happened, I got shocked. I was like, ‘Whoa!'” he said.
He added that he hopes all bikers view the clip, in hopes of saving lives.
“Be aware. Be more cautious when riding. Don’t do what I did,” Lopez said.
