VIDEO | Cyclist crashes into learner drivers parked car
Edward Barlow was talking to his instructor when the cyclist – who appeared to be concentrating on his bike’s computer – crashed into the back of the vehicle
There are many worries surrounding your first driving lesson – but a cyclist speeding headlong into the back of your parked car isn’t usually one of them.
However, that’s exactly what happened as novice driver Edward Barlow, from Liverpool, was talking to his instructor close to Sefton Park.
As the remarkable video – filmed from the vehicle and obtained by the Liverpool Echo – shows, a cyclist suddenly appears behind the car.
And seemingly distracted his bike computer, he doesn’t see the car until he has crashed into the back of it.
The rider appears completely oblivious to the rapidly oncoming hazard and ploughs into the vehicle while still pedalling hard.
Thankfully, he was only dazed as Edward and his instructor got out to check.
Edward posted the video on his Facebook page.
He said: “So my first ever driving lesson went really well even though some crazy guy cycled into the back of me when I was parked.”
