Watch: Cyclist has horrific crash

Dutch cyclist Annemiek van Vleuten was in a horrific accident Sunday in the Olympic women's road race. van Vleuten had a substantial lead when her bike slipped, flipping her over the handlebars. She had just six miles left on the course.

Reaction to the wreck was immediate.

I've watched cycling for 25 years and never seen a wreck as awful as what a Dutch cyclist just suffered. Still no confirmation she survived.

Luckily, it appears that van Vleuten will be OK.


van Vleuten is currently on her way to the hospital.
