A good friend spent 10 years on pain killers, no spleen, wired up hip & femur plus (2) artificial elbbows because of a similar situation

This is all over the internet, along with the guys license plate. I hope the police pay him a nice friendly visit.

Re: Wow

Idiot cager parking on the wrong side of the road on a blind curve.

Idiot rider going too fast for the sight distance. :banghead:

The cager is arguably more in the wrong, but they are both lucky no one got hurt.

Have you watched the vid as the cager was not parking.

Nope, the driver was not parking...he was passing two skateboarders in a blind curve. And he seemed to think it was funny afterwards. I'm hoping it was just nerves on the driver's part.

Not cool...

On my phone it looks like the driver of the Toyota is out in the road. The second video won't play. I'll try to look on a bigger screen.

EDIT: Amazing what's lost on a small screen. Second video works this morning, too.

Quite a bit of stupidity at work here: skateboarding on a public road like that one, passing on a blind curve, riding too fast for the sight line. And we have it on video from both directions! LEOs would have fun handing out tickets to those involved. Wonder what happened with the oncoming car and the second bike?

Pretty incredible reaction on the part of the rider.

I'm pretty sure cage driver is the chase/camera car for the skate boarders. He is in radio communication with them. You can hear him talking to them about the biker "might come back and kick ass". He is in the oncoming lane to get a better camera shot.

I'm no diplomat

Sure the guy is chase cam. Skaters stay in the right lane. Cager driving a tank goes into wrong lane on blind curve!

Brilliant!

If it were a semi truck instead of a motorcycle, I bet the guy in the SUV would not have been laughing.
