I think you're looking at last year's crash that Gianni Moscon's wheel crumbled under him.

For the Stage 8 crash:
Geraint Thomas relatively unscathed in high-speed Tour de France crash - Video | Cyclingnews.com

There don't seem to be a lot of good videos of the crash released. One overhead shot that is somewhat obscured at the beginning of the crash.

Reports:
EF Education First's Michael Woods slid out on a right turn and Thomas and teammates Michel Kwiatkowski and Gianni Moscon rode into him. Thomas went down on his left side but was not hurt and quickly jumped up, found his bike and got going again after a push from Kwiatkowski and Moscon. Wout Poels then paced him back to the peloton on the climb in a moment of panic.
