A cyclist avoided serious injury after colliding with a car in Dublin city yesterday morning.

Footage of the incident was uploaded to Facebook by Johnny Eutah, who filmed the collision on a headcam. 

Mr Eutah was tailing the cyclist when he attempted to overtake the vehicle on its right side.

Just as he was about to go around the car pulled out ever so slightly and he collided with the back of it. 

"He got up and talked to the car owner but the driver never got out and I don't think details were exchanged," Eutah said. "Feel bad for the driver.

"I talked to the cyclist after and he seems like a nice guy, just made a mistake. Stupid mistake all be it. Schools are back now so have to slow down."

The minor collision occurred on Eglington Road near Donnybrook.
