This is the moment a motorcyclist is thrown from his bike after almost colliding with a car.
The motorcyclist is filmed being thrown from his bike after a silver saloon car turns into his path just as he is overtaking a black Mercedes next to a road junction.
Sparks flying from his bike as he swerves to avoid the collision and he is left sprawling on the road.
The biker is left sprawling on the road but, amazingly, he escaped with only minor injuries following the smash on the A665 in Ardwick, close to Manchester city centre.
The video, shot in June, has been released by vehicle CCTV firm SmartWitness to highlight the dangers of motorcyclists overtaking close to junctions as new figures show a record number of biker casualties on Britain’s roads.
Motorcyclists remain the most vulnerable road users, accounting for 21 per cent of all road deaths in the UK last year, according to Department for Transport figures.
