A 34-year old cyclist enjoying some music on his earphones apparently didn’t notice that the bus in front of him was about to turn right and as a result, he was ground to a bloody pulp underneath the wheels of the older styled Russian bus.
The incident took place at a busy junction in the city of Angarsk in south-central Russia. The cyclist, wearing a hoody and his ears covered in large headphones, can be seen splattering out into a bloody mess as the bus driver has him caught in a corner where he can’t see him because of the size of his vehicle.
As can be seen, the victim, whose name has not been released by Russian authorities, later died at the scene of the accident.
The city of Angarsk is located in south-central Russia's Irkutsk Oblast region.
Several commenters on social media sites in Russia stated that they couldn’t help but to see it over and over again.

- ‘drone’ added: "Cyclists should not ride in front of a bus. The bus driver had nothing to do with his death."
