A MOTORCYCLIST in Dublin misjudged how much time and space he needed to cut in front of an approaching bus and very nearly ended up under its wheels.
Footage from a nearby vehicle shows one bike successfully making the manoeuvre but a second biker is less lucky and is clipped by the bus.
According to the uploader, it was a “bad smash”. He wrote: “The motorbike rider hit the bus, then my car, then bounced back at the bus. Bike was badly damaged. My car was slightly damaged and the bus had minor damage”
The driver was very shaken up! I hope he takes a day or two off. Lovely man, and wasn’t his fault

However, a commenter on the YouTube video claiming to be a friend of the motorcyclist played down the incident, which happened May 28, saying: “I’ve just spoken to him. Some bruising, he rode the bike home with just a small dent in the tank.”
