It was close, but not close enough for a motorcycle daredevil trying to make a world record jump.

Trigger Gumm went to a Miami Casino attempting to jump 315 feet from ramp to ramp. He hit the first ramp at 90 miles an hour, sailed about 70 feet high, then landed on a dirt ramp where he lost control and crashed.

Gumm already holds the Guinness world record for a 277.5 foot jump he completed in 2005.

He waved to the crowd as medical personnel treated his injuries.
