An Ottawa man decided to buy a dash cam, and a day later he was able to catch a cyclist crash into another car while crossing an intersection.
Reddit user Nick Fleury (username 26Drunk) bought the dash cam for $75 on Amazon, and a day later he went out for lunch with his girlfriend. As he approached an intersection, a cyclist nearly hit his car. The cyclist kept pedaling, and he was hit by the car in the next lane.
“Luckily my girlfriend was fast enough on the brakes to miss the cyclist. But a second car had come back and unfortunately hit the cyclist,” Fleury said according to CBC News.
A police officer nearby witnessed the collision. The driver of the car was fine, and the cyclist suffered a sore hip but nothing more.
Adding insult to injury, the cyclist was charged with a traffic violation after the accident.
Luckily no one was seriously hurt. Hopefully the rest of Fleury’s dashcam career isn’t as eventful as day one.
