This is the moment a teenage motorcyclist pulling wheelies down a motorway is hit from behind by a driver and sent flying.
The startling scenes were recorded by one of the biker’s friends on the Santos Dumont (SP-075) motorway in the city of Campinas in the southern Brazilian state of Sao Paulo.
In the video, a group of bikers, who have not been named in reports, can be seen riding down the quiet motorway at night when one of them pulls a wheelie. The biker even takes both hands of the handlebars and dances as he pulls the wheelie.

The camera then turns to another member of the group in the inside lane who also pulls a wheelie. However, as the camera passes the stunt-pulling biker a car comes speeding behind him and knocks him off the bike.
The person recording can be seen heard saying “oh my god, they killed ‘neguinho’’. Local media report the biker who was hit, whose name has not been reported but who is 19 years old, was taken to hospital with light injuries and has since been discharged.
The Civil Police say the driver of the car stopped to provide aid for the injured biker but they have not confirmed if an investigation into the incident has been launched.
