Video Shows Bikers Seconds Before Death

Video Shows Bikers Seconds Before Death

Seconds after this video was shot two men were dead after their speeding motorbike smashed into the side of a truck making a turn ahead of them.

A scream was the last sound bike driver Pavel Kochenskyy, 43, made on this earth - before his powerful machine hit the lorry on a lonely road near Blagoveshchensk, a city in south-eastern Russia.

Dying with him was his pillion passenger and close pal Grigoriy Makelev, 41. Both were family men with wives and children who had never even had so much as a traffic ticket or a parking fine in their lives before.

But that was before getting hold of the new turbo charged super bike - and taking it for a spin.

The video of the terrible accident was taken by Viktor Malenko, the driver of a nearby car who sent it to local media running a campaign against dangerous driving.

Pavel can be heard shouting an expletive in Russian as well moments before the two bikers meet their deaths.

"I couldn't help myself," said Viktor Malenko. "I saw what was about to happen and just screamed out the words. I got out to see what could be done but there was no hope. One of the other drivers told me that there had been a scream from the driver of the bike, then the crash, then nothing.

He added: "It was so heartbreaking to witness, two lives crossing over into the hereafter. They were going too fast to stop and the truck was too slow to get out of the way. That was why I wanted to share the video, as a warning to others about speeding."

A police spokesman said: "Both men died from multiple injuries and didn't stand a chance of surviving. They were both killed instantly."
