A cyclist riding in a group in Australia was clipped by a car’s window mirror and has triggered a mass pile-up.
The short video shows a group of cyclists riding two abreast. One towards the front of the pack is clipped by the mirror of a car, and hits the bitumen, triggering a pile up as other cyclists crash into him. The rider initially hit, Craig Johnston, told ABC Radio he was sore and bruised, but otherwise alright.
