The Tour de France is barely underway, and cyclists have already had enough of fans inching as close as they can to course in the hopes of snapping photographs. After all, that impulse can be really dangerous, as one spectator found out the hard way during the Tour's second stage on Sunday.

This isn't the only incident involving a spectator getting too close to the course and causing chaos. The Guardian reported that four competitors crashed as a result of another spectator stepping onto the road to take photos during the third stage on Monday.

So, fans, put the cameras away. That snapshot isn't worth a stay at the hospital.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article incorrectly suggested that the collision occurred near London
