Note not a single skid mark and the car is close to stopped (except for movement trying avoid the crash) when they make contact.
I feel sorry for him, as it clearly wasn't his fault.
To start with, he's riding a cruiser and everybody knows you can only use the rear brake or you'll crash...
Then of course he couldn't use the brake as everybody knows you can't brake in a corner or you'll crash...
Then there was that damn photographer who set the whole thing up by distracting him with his camera so he'd crash...
Poor guy never stood a chance.
On the plus side, he'll probably go back to four wheels.

Have Sporadic Spot, will travel sporadically...
And a picture outside my window... Sometimes...
