The moment Matt Walls crashes over barrier and into crowd at Commonwealth games – video

England’s Matt Walls catapulted over the railings and into the crowd in the latest incident to plague the cycling events at the Commonwealth Games. Somehow, the 24-year-old avoided major injuries in the crash and was discharged from hospital by the evening with little more than bumps and bruises. Two spectators, including a young girl, received treatment for injuries in the velodrome. The crash occurred when several riders ahead of Walls collided going into a corner. The Olympic omnium champion tried to avoid the stricken pair of New Zealand’s George Jackson and Australia’s Josh Duffy but was carrying too much speed and was forced up the banking.
