THIS IS the moment an unsecured mattress flew into the path of a motorcyclist heading 50mph into a tunnel.

The incident, caught on CCTV, took place in the Clem 7 tunnel in Brisbane, Australia on 28th March. Moments before the freak accident, rider Aaron Wood was following a Toyota Prado on his Honda CBR1000RR and claims that the 'endo' caused by the mattress was so powerful he tore the grips off of his handlebars.

The driver was eventualy fined $275 with "failing to ensure load on private light vehicle complies with requirements" several days after the incident as Australian Police claimed that the number plate was difficult to read.
