Google Maps appears to show moment biker was run over by Street View car

Google Maps appears to show moment biker was run over by Street View car

The awkward moment was caught on camera

I don't know about you, but I love wasting time on Google Maps.

What could be better than exploring the streets of a whole new country from your bed?

But not only do you get to nosy at beautiful streets in far away countries, you get to see some hilarious Easter eggs.

Usually the funnier sights on Google Street View are of people doing something dodgy or pulling a funny pose.

Though this example is a little more serious.

It looks like the Street View car has been involved in a bit of an incident as a cache of photos have been shared on Reddit documenting what appears to be a hit-and-run traffic crash.

As if that wasn't crazy enough, the incident is now documented on Google Maps.

In the photos, a man on a motorbike is seen attempting a u-turn.

As the photos go by, he is seen then seen being knocked off his bike by the Google Street View car.

The person who shared the images to social media didn't reveal a location, but another user identified it as being Youpe Amadi in Senegal, Africa.

Redditors shared their reaction to the images.

One wroted: "Imagine Google Street View being used as evidence."

Another commented: "How the f**k does this make it on Google? They’re not uploading in real time lmao are they? I’d think he’d go back and drive past the area without the crash for there to be a clean version to upload? Or at least blurred this out, but maybe it just slipped through the cracks."

While a third chipped in with: "Going up to your boss and saying 'Hey I just hit a guy so we should probably go back and retake pictures of this area' could result in a loss of job. My guess is the driver never reported this and there's no human actually looking at all of the pictures they take for Street View."

Ooh, there's a conspiracy if I heard one. It might explain a lot about some of the other blunders that have slipped through the net over the years too.

This seems to be the first time that the Google Street View car has been caught up in a collision itself.

On other occasions, it has spotted some other...interesting things.

One couple were caught getting down and dirty by the side of an Australian highway by Google's car.

In the rather saucy shots, the woman can be seen smiling at the Google car as the man takes a swig from his beer as they fool around on the boot of their car.

There's an image for this year's Christmas card, eh?
