Two cyclists are lucky to be uninjured after nearly colliding with a pickup truck at a major Victoria intersection earlier this week.
The frightening near-miss incident was captured on one commuter’s dashcam, and uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday.
The footage shows two cyclists on a tandem bicycle crossing west through the intersection of Finlayson and Blanshard Streets, as a pickup truck travelling east on Finlayson turned north onto Blanshard.
After the truck narrowly avoided the cyclists, the video shows the vehicle spin out of control onto Blanshard Street, forcing the driver to stop and readjust their vehicle on the three-lane street.
“So many things wrong here,” reads the video description.
“Tandem bike possibly could have stopped. Green truck should have checked and waited for the intersection to be cleared, and the BMW after the truck should not have gone at all.”
