“I could have been dead there, mate. Lucky to get away with me life there boys,” McGregor says in the video he shot.
Footage shows McGregor’s road bike damaged from the impact and fall with pieces scattered around the scene. In the post McGregor says the driver couldn’t see him due to the glare from the sun as he drove around the corner.
In the video the driver, identified as Nick, was apologetic to McGregor who repeatedly told the driver not to worry.
The driver then loaded the bike into the vehicle and gave McGregor a ride home. McGregor recorded a video with the driver included in the original post.
