Impromptu stunts are nothing new to the adrenaline junkies of the world, we see them from skateboarders, BMX’rs and other action sports athletes all the time. However, most of they time these guys and gals keep the danger confined to themselves and their equipment, and maybe some public property.
This guy, although clearly in full control of his dirt bike, added the element of completely innocent motorists as part of the stunt, creating a hazard for anybody who happened to be traveling down the busy highway he decided to jump over. The rider, who’s currently being watched closely by local authorities, dug out a narrow approach path and ramp over the 60 Freeway in Moreno Valley, CA before leaping over 100 feet across the lanes of traffic below.
He landed the jump with ease, but with so many variables involved, he could have easily landed directly in the path of oncoming traffic or even on a passing vehicle. Law enforcement is investigating the incident and it seems likely charges will be pressed soon.
