Drove past a bad crash earlier today :(




Cellphone = old so sorry for quality

The bike literally like lifted a 5k lb truck and spun it around though onto a curb... im thinking 60+ mph impact speed.

stay safe bros, it was a nice day, 72* here in florida , probably all gone for this person. Always look twice at motorcycles to judge their speed and stay safe.

I havent seen any news reports on this crash yet, but judging by the wreckage it looks like it was most likely fatal to me.

Sometimes with those T-bone crashes the rider is catapulted over the vehicle into the pavement but lives. But really, the old granny pulling out on a 30 mph street is not expecting the sport-bike hitting 70 mph+ in 1st gear. There are places away from urban areas where it is safe to get the speed up, but speeding in urban areas is flat-out dangerous and stupid. Btw using extra-bright headlight bulbs for the daytime helps other drivers to notice you more quickly before they pull out. Part of defensive driving is expecting that someone can pull out in front of you last second.

I am believing the accident was not fatal to you, unless you are posting from "The great beyond".
