Dashcam video captured the moment an unsecured load flew off the back of an SUV and struck a motorcyclist.
The incident happened June 18 on Interstate 94 in Woodbury, Minnesota. The 20-year-old motorcyclist was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to KMSP-TV.
Linda Leverty, who posted the video on Facebook, said she and her son stopped to help the motorcyclist, who reportedly said he was unable to swerve because he'd been riding for only a couple of weeks.

The SUV that was hauling what appeared to be a rolled-up foam floating pad behind a boat did not stop following the incident, and KMSP-TV reported the driver of the vehicle may have been unaware that the item was even lost. The Minnesota State Patrol still has not located the SUV.
