For some seemingly inexplicable reason, a motorcyclist came off a turn on Mulholland Drive and rammed into two cyclists pedaling on the right side of the road. The cyclists had no warning and and one of them was tossed up in the air upon impact and landed on his back. The second cyclist was hit by the errant motorcycle as the three bodies of they cyclists and motorcyclist crumpled on to the ground.
The particular 2.4 mile-long stretch of Mulholland Highway where the crash occurred has earned the nickname “the snake” because of its tightly coiled curves and hairpin turns.
Mulholland Drive is a very popular biking and driving destination in Southern California. Google map is available here.

Motorcycle wrecks are so common along the roadway that two photographers and one videographer come to the stretch every weekend to capture the slide-outs. The videographers were perched high on the roadway and captured this crash as it happened.
