Crash after drone flies into bike race

SACRAMENTO, California -- A drone filming the Golden State Race Series in California clipped a tree over the course and went spinning into the passing pack of cyclists.

One rider flipped right over the handlebars when a big chunk of the drone got lodged in his front wheel.

Luckily, the rider just suffered abrasions and no broken bones. The drone operator reportedly offered to buy him a new front wheel and helmet.
