This was the shocking moment a Manila moped rider crashed on a sidewalk after trying to dodge traffic on Sunday (August 4).

Footage from the Marcos Highway shows the rider cut past traffic on the subway, then crashing abruptly when hitting a gap in the ground.

One other moped rider who was on the roadside attempted to help after the crash as traffic passed.

The filmer said he and his family in the car "were shocked and surprised."
