Driving off the side of a mountain is never how you want to spend part of your day. It's not quite clear what caused the rider to veer as hard to his left as he did, but that led to him driving right off the mountain. Fortunately, he was okay and left the scene with only a sore shoulder.
While we're talking about accidents, this series of collisions at a motocross race could have been so much worse had the participants not been wearing their protective gear. As the riders made their way up the first hill, the rider in front took a tumble. Some of the other contestants couldn't move out of the way in time and ended up crashing as well.
