Video: Is this the world's worst SMIDSY?

Lorry driver on wrong side of road wipes out Monster

IS this the world's worst SMIDSY? The poor Ducati Monster that bore the brunt of the wide-cornering lorry probably thinks so.

The biker pulls up to a junction when a lorry turns off the main road on a wide line and crushes the bike beneath its wheels. Fortunately the biker leaps clear just in time to escape serious injury.

Video blogger Bigsmokeandthemonster caught the smash on his helmet cam and - despite the shock of the accident - remains remarkably calm as he watches helplessly while his unlucky Ducati is dragged back down the road under the wheels of the truck.

Our favourite part of the video has to be the little old lady who comes running to the rescue with a hug to make it better.
