(NBC NEWS) – A California motorcyclist is lucky to be alive after colliding head-on with a truck. The terrifying crash was captured by his helmet camera.
The video shows Jesse Lopez enjoying his ride near Glendora on April 1st. His adventure comes to a quick end when he collides with an oncoming truck on a blind curve in the road.
Luckily, Lopez survived, suffering a broken femur, tibia, fibula, ulna and humerus at the elbow. He says doesn’t remember much of the accident, but judging from the video he says he panicked when he saw the truck and applied his motorcycle’s front brakes, which caused him to lose control.
The truck’s driver was not injured.
