Luis Ocaña crash, 1971 Tour de France

During a descent in the 14th stage, Ocaña fell. At first, he was slow to get up, before Joop Zoetemelk came screaming around the same corner. Zoetemelk punctured and was unable to avoid him, and hit him at high speed. Ocaña had to give up with a badly injured shoulder.
