ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: An intersection in eastern Argentina was the scene for a dramatic chain-reaction crash and lucky escape for the victims on Wednesday (May 8). A car passing through the intersection ploughed into a crossing motorcyclist. The man was knocked off his bike and slammed into pedestrian walking across the street. The accident was caught by a security camera at an intersection in the small city of Olavarria in the province of Buenos Aires about 350 kilometers (215 miles) south of Buenos Aires. The motorcycle got trapped under the car, but the driver was thrown from the bike and collided with the pedestrian. Despite the dramatic nature of the accident, the motorcyclist and pedestrian both walked away with only minor injuries, according to police. Investigators are questioning the driver of the car, who was also not seriously injured in the accident.
