A GROUP of cyclists was scattered across the road after a car hit them and drove off.
The video, captured in Newcastle, Australia, was filmed in 2018 and shows just how dangerous it can be riding on the road.
It's all captured on a rear-facing camera attached to the saddle of one of the riders in the group.
At least eight riders can be seen in the shot, riding on the side of a main road with a 90kph (55mph) speed limit.
The cyclists are riding two abreast to the left-hand side of the white line – although they are extremely close to it.
After just a few seconds a grey Honda appears from behind the cyclists and is clearly very close to them with its lane position.

"Fortunately, no one critically injured. Two conveyed to hospital for exam/treatment & a couple of bikes suffered a bit of rash but oooooooh so lucky."
But which side are you on? Some people have pointed out that the cyclists were too close to the white line, while others think it's all on the driver.
On an upload of the video to Youtube, MightyRoos said: "It’s a straight road with clear visibility. Not very hard to miss the group of cyclists.
