This is the shocking moment a cyclist tries to cross the road in front of two people on a motorbike causing a crash which reportedly left one dead.
The incident was filmed by a CCTV camera in the Colombian capital Bogota and the video was shared on Twitter by netizen ‘La Rola’ where it has been seen 235,000 times.
In the footage, the unnamed 33-year-old cyclist is seen riding along the side of the road before attempting to cross.
He cycles into the middle of the road without appearing to notice an oncoming motorbike with two riders, reportedly relatives aged 23 and 20.
The bikes collide and the two riders are sent flying, appearing to injure themselves on the kerb as the cyclist ends up in a heap in the road.
According to local media, an unnamed 23-year-old biker died on the scene after sustaining a serious head injury while his 20-year-old female companion has been hospitalised along with the cyclist who appeared to have caused the accident.
Their injuries are not serious, according to reports.
The local authorities have yet to confirm whether they are investigating the incident.
