GLENDORA, Calif. (NBC NEWS) – A motorcyclist is lucky to be alive after colliding with a truck, and the collision is all caught on his helmet cam.

Video shows Jesse Lopez enjoying his ride down Glendora Ride Road in Glendora California on April 1.

His adventure quickly turns dramatic when he suddenly collides with an oncoming truck on a blind curve in the road.

Luckily, Lopez survived, suffering a broken femur, tibia, fibula, ulna and humerus at the elbow.

Lopez says he doesn’t remember much of the crash, but says judging from the video, he panicked when he saw the truck and applied his motorcycle’s front brakes, which straightened him out in front of the truck.

Officials say the truck driver was not injured.
