On what was supposed to be a relaxing group ride on their motorcycles, Travis Meyer and his friends were met with an unexpected catastrophe when a small dog ran across a rural highway. Meyer’s helmet camera caught the shocking footage from beginning to end, which clearly shows himself quickly swerving to dodge the dog. Meyer then turned his head to the left, only to see one of his friends crashing into the dog. After that, another friend from the group also wrecked his bike, not into the friend who had crashed, but the same dog, making for an incredibly unlikely freak accident.
Travis’s voice came through as he continues to ride forward, slowing his bike down. “No fucking way,” he said to himself, convinced what he’d seen didn’t actually happen. “No fucking way,” he repeated, showing extreme concern for the safety of his friends. As the driver u-turned, he saw that one of the young men that had crashed his bike was standing unscathed, but angry.
The rider who was the first to hit the dog, however, wasn’t as lucky. Unfortunately, he walked away with bruised bones, road rash, and an injured kidney, but he still walked away relatively unhurt when he could have been seriously injured. There is no news, however, on the health of the dog or who the owner of the dog was.
The video has gone viral overnight, accruing over a million views in less than three days, making for an important to lesson to bikers everywhere, one that Travis Meyer himself presses in the footer of his video – be sure to wear your gear! Riding motorcycles can be especially dangerous, making it very important to dress appropriately. If a small sized dog can run out and hit, not one, but two small sized vehicles in what looks like the middle of nowhere, anything can happen.
