Watch this motorcyclist barely avoid a kangaroo

By ,

Collisions between motorists and kangaroos are fairly commonplace in Australia. In fact, more than 20,000 are hit by a car each year, and Volvo has decided to develop the first-ever kangaroo detection and collision avoidance system.

In this case, though, a biker in New South Wales managed to narrowly avoid the poor beast as it attempted to cross the road.
The scene was captured by his helmet-mounted camera, and you can watch it on the AOL UK website. Hold your breath!
