Before the biker has time to react, the bonnet pokes out from in front of the bus directly in his path.

He slams into the car and leaves a dent in its front as his bike falls sideways onto the tarmac.

Debris is scattered onto the road as a dad and two girls flinch a few feet away on the pavement.

The collision is so violent that the biker is somersaulted onto the car windscreen and lands on the roof.

Remarkably, he lands in a sitting position with his bum on the hardtop and his legs over the windshield.

The authorities in Taboão da Serra, on the outskirts of São Paulo, Brazil, said he sustained only minor injuries in the collision on 1 May.

The car driver was pulling out of a petrol station at the time, according to local media.
