The collision with a Mercedes car

A video footage of this accident has been leaked to an Italian newspaper and is from a roadside CCTV footage. The footage reveals the dark-colored Mercedes car pulling into a wrong turn and makes a turn and then hesitates. The driver then realizes that there are two mopeds coming towards it. The first moped driver manages to swirl his bike and it does not hit the car. But the second biker which was George did not have time enough to take a deviation and went head-on into the car.
