Moment reckless quad biker somersaults through air after crash into parked car

Dramatic footage shows a quad biker being sent flying through the air after crashing into a parked car.

CCTV footage shows the rider somersault – but miraculously land on his feet apparently not seriously hurt – after the collision in the town of Handsworth in Birmingham.

It was not known if the driver was injured but he manages to walk away from the carnage.

The footage then shows him examine his bag following the drama in Trinity Road, BirminghamLive reports.

He hobbles back to check the damage to the car, which was believed to be a Lexus, as another quad biker believed to be travelling with him stops on the other side of the road.

Anwar Afzal told Birmingham Live the hair-raising incident happened near Birchfields Community School on Thursday, April 1.

Unsurprisingly, the video quickly got a lot of attention when it was uploaded on social media, and dozens of viewers left comments – with many calling the quad biker "lucky".

One person wrote: "Wow. How did he manage not to be seriously hurt there?"
