Video footage shows the final moments of the accident which reportedly took place in Xi’an, in north-western China’s Shaanxi Province.
In the video, a female rider can be seen travelling on a motorbike inside a tunnel.
Suddenly, another biker appears from behind her and attempts to overtake her from the right.
But as the other biker tries to speed past her, they accidentally ram the back wheel of the woman’s motorbike and both of them lose balance.
The woman is thrown to the ground as her motorcycle flies several feet in the air before crashing on the asphalt.
Luckily, both survived the accident but had to be treated at hospital for their injuries.
The Xi’an traffic police confirmed the motorcyclist from behind bears full responsibility.
Police reminded all road participants that overtaking from the right side and overtaking in tunnels is strictly prohibited.
They also reminded all motorcyclists to keep their helmets on at all times as they are the primary responsible party for their own safety.
