The motorist can be heard saying, “I didn’t see you coming around, sorry…. I was looking at the other side.”
A brief glimpse of the bicycle gives an idea of the damage, with the front wheel completely crumpled.
To her credit, the motorist stops immediately to check on the condition of the cyclist and offer her details.
The most surprising part of the aftermath video is how calm the bicycle commuter remains throughout.
