America's luckiest bicyclist

Watch the cyclist go through the crosswalk and then keep your eye on the right side of the screen...

Should be named "America's luckiest idiot driver". I can't believe he made it. And hardly anyone batted an eyelash.

The black SUV hit him actually. Frankly I think those pedestrians were in more danger then a cyclist.

Not bad driving/good reflex actions by the driver of the black SUV . You normally would not expect some tool to run a light like that.

Incredible. The cyclist would have been killed because he the motorist was doing more than 35 mph. I think he skid after doing that stunt but it just goes to show you the poor driving on todays roads.

Reminds me of that old video game, Frogger, where you had to make the frog go across the road without getting squished. What a buffoon!

You can see the front of the black SUV dip as he jabs on his brakes. I think it was the back of the white car in the next lane that was hit.

Be nice folks. Try a little empathy. Once the McGriddles are gone at 11:00 am, they're GONE.

It was tongue in cheek. Note the car was travelling towards the McDonalds.

I've seen quite a few of such types of videos. Most of the time it involves the deaths of bystanders, usually other passengers/drivers and/or pedestrians. I usually don't cross busy roads w/o looking quite ahead to see what's about to cross my path...
