This near catastrophic crash captured via a dash cam at Gran Fondo Prospera Axel Merckx in Okangan, Canada is tough to watch unfold.

Luckily, with 2600 riders at the event the driver was going slow and paying attention when the crash dominoed riders into the car lane.  A few scrapes and bruises for the riders, otherwise everyone as ok and continued on.
