WATCH: Kangaroo and cyclist collide

While on the surface the idea of colliding with a kangaroo seems comical to us, in Australia, it is actually a serious concern with sometimes devastating results, as a search on Youtube might yield.

Helmet cam footage shows the moment a kangaroo leaped across the road and collided with a cyclist in Boonah, west of the Gold Coast. Rebecca, the cyclist, suffered injuries to her shoulder where the animal hit her and to her knee after hitting the ground.

The kangaroo then innocently hopped away.
