Dan Walker reveals moment he ‘came round’ after being knocked out in crash as presenter is showered with gifts from fans | The Sun

DAN Walker has revealed the moment he "came around" after being knocked out in a terrifying crash.

The TV star said his bike helmet saved his life when he was hit by a car.

The bloodied presenter, 45, said he thought he was going to die after the vehicle ploughed into him on a busy roundabout on Monday.

In rear-view dashcam footage Dan, who was cycling to catch a train at 8.30am as he headed to work at 5 News, is seen on his electric bike.

The Strictly star can be seen entering the roundabout in Sheffield – following the road when the car appears to cut him off to try to take the nearest exit.

In a split second, he is hit, thrown off and into the path of the car while his bike is crushed.
