A motorcyclist careened off a highway yet miraculously only escaped with a broken shoulder in a dramatic crash caught on video.

The California Highway Patrol says the video of the biker going over the cliff was taken Sunday along the Angeles Crest Highway in the southern part of the state, KABC reports.

Footage showed the driver maneuvering down the mountain road before going into a turn too fast and crashing over the guardrail.

The bike ended up in a tree while the rider had to be airlifted to a local hospital.
