THIS is the shocking footage that shows the moment a motorcyclist flies through the air and dies after going 100mph while fleeing police – leaving a news reporter stunned.
The motorcycle rider was killed after colliding with a car in West Hills, Kalifornien, on Thursday afternoon, according to officials.
Before the horrific crash, KCAL anchor Amy Johnson was reporting on the speeding motorcycle alongside live aerial footage.
As the bike is seen speeding on a road, Johnson said: “So dangerous… it’s tough to see this because people are not expecting a vehicle of any type, even a motorcycle, to come racing up to them so quickly.
“And wow. Well over 80 miles an hour, creeping up on 100 mph.”
As Johnson describes the live footage that was being aired on CBSN Los Angeles, the bike is seen reaching high speeds.
And according to the digital speedometer shown by the news outlet, the motorcycle possibly reached up to 135mph.
“You can see it just flying by these cars and it is not only dangerous to those other drivers — but certainly dangerous to this motorcyclist,” Johnson continued.
Moments later the speeding motorcycle rider is seen hitting a car at an intersection and getting thrown through the air.
