To the g1, he said he had the equipment installed on his helmet because he is a YouTuber. In addition to recording videos for the internet showing daily life in the city and the life of a motorcycle courier, Vinicius has dedicated himself to telling interesting facts about the world of motorcycles to almost a thousand subscribers on his channel.
Camera on motorcycle helmet records accident in Nova Friburgo
“I have the camera precisely because I record motorcycle content for YouTube. I record tips, talk about the motorcycle, which is very popular today among young people”, she says.
What Vinicius didn’t imagine was that the camera, which has already recorded so many beauties in the city, such as tourist attractions and trails, would capture one of the biggest scares he’s ever had on his journey on two wheels. Last Tuesday (30), he was surprised by a driver’s maneuver while passing through Avenida Galdino do Vale Filho, in the Center.
“I saw him sewing in traffic before, before the accident. I saw that he left the sidewalk and went to the left lane. I thought he would continue […]I tried to overtake, to follow my path, but as I accelerated the bike, to be able to get out of the way of the cars, he threw it back, surprising me on the right”, he described.
Images show that the driver of the car did not stop to provide assistance, which was confirmed by the firefighters who were at the scene of the accident to the report.
The victim was taken with minor injuries to the Raul Sertã Municipal Hospital, but was treated and released on the same day.
As a result of the fall, the motorcyclist scraped his knees, legs, arms, hands and back. The motorcycle suffered damage to several parts, as well as the helmet and camera. The phone in his pocket was also damaged.
“I recognize that there is a limit on the road, later in the video, I saw that I was above the speed limit, but due to the rush of leaving one job for another, then having to return, in the rush of everyday life, we end up not even noticing these infractions,” said the motorcyclist, who works two jobs and is paid by the hour.
The victim registered the case at the Nova Friburgo Police Station. Vinicius explained that another motorcyclist who appears in the images passing by when he saw the accident, in fact, went after the driver of the passenger car.
“In the video you can see that a motorcycle taxi passes by with a customer, they decided to go after the driver of the car to ask him to stop to help, but they said that the driver of the car cursed them and said he would not stop”, he reported to g1 the biker.
The information was also reported in the statement that Vinícius gave at the Nova Friburgo Police Station, where the police report was registered.
According to the motorcyclist, the driver of the car did not seek assistance until Friday afternoon.
