Collisions happen quite often in racing and this event was no different - except for the unusual ending.

Andrew Gluvna, from Phoenix, Arizona, taking part in an F2 race, tries to avoid colliding with the rider in front who fell off his bike. Gluvna's handlebars strike the rider but also somehow hook him to it.

Rider, while detaching himself, says: "I'm good, I'm good."

Gluvna: "Wow! that was insane1"

Gluvna then drives off with one helluva story to tell to his friends.
