Here is the dramatic footage of a man on a bike in downtown Ottawa struck by a car on Saturday.
The video was taken by a dash cam on the car beside the vehicle that came into collision with the cyclist.
The video shows the cyclist running a red light which was followed by the accident which occurred at Laurier Avenue West and Lyon Avenue.
Despite saying it would release a safety report on the Laurier Avenue cycling lanes in the spring, the city has yet to make it public despite the document being commissioned in fall of 2016 by Mayor Jim Watson.
The rider of the bike travelling on Laurier, despite the spectacular collision, appeared to by unhurt in the incident.
Video above: This is the dash cam video of the incident. Please note there is coarse language in the video.
