This is the terrifying moment a motorcyclist crashed into a car at almost 180 miles per hour.
The bike, which was covering a staggering three miles every minute, was filmed on a highway outside the Lithuanian capital Vilnius.
The rider had a camera attached to his helmet which showed the speedometer rising to 280km/h - which works out at 170 miles per hour.

Anybody doing 170+mph on a public highway is dicing with death, theses, and other peoples.
