What would you say if you were riding along with your friends on a weekly cruise, and saw them all going down when road obstruction started to fly in their path? Well “OH My God No” sounds about right to us and is exactly what you will hear in this video that was taken via a GoPro helmet camera one of the riders who escaped wrecking was wearing. This takes place down in McAllen, Texas when large Styrofoam boxes that weren’t tied properly ended up creating havoc and a life or death situation on the highway. Two bikers went down and one bike was totaled.
Both bikers were sent to the hospital, but luckily released the next day with nothing more than bruising and road rash. There is no news if the trucker carrying the Styrofoam boxes has been cited or not. From the looks of it, this could have played out much worse than the loss of one motorcycle.
One of the riders commented, “This was our weekly ride that we do ever wednesday with our crew, my friend was recording with his go pro and i got the footage from him, we were going for our ride on the highway and there was this truck hauling a trailer with boxes of styra foam and they wernt strapped down, 1 box flew out and one member (250) couldnt dodge it hit the box and went down, the other rider (R6) clipped his bike and fell aswell the the ride on the250 is the body on the left and the body on the right side rolling is the r6 rider, also our leader of the crew. Both guys were taken to the hospital and were out the next day with some road rash and a few bruises, the 250 was totaled and the r6 was saved cause of the crash cage it had.”
