Guess who wins?
So I was sitting at a red light on the way to work. It turned green. I started to go but saw a guy on a 10-speed hauling ass into the intersection against the red light from my left. I stopped. The guy on the 10-speed didn’t. Neither did the guy next to me. The car on my right, who couldn’t see the guy on the bike, pulled out.
The biker didn’t even hit the brakes. Straight into the side of the car. He did a full flip and landed face down.
When I saw the guy on the bike I said, out loud, to myself ‘This isn’t gonna end ::: smash ::: well’.
The car that got hit stopped. I got out of the car and went to check on the bike rider. He was out cold for a minute or two. He then woke up and got out of the street. I talked to him a bit and he seemed to be ok. I called 911, as did everyone else, and sat with the biker until the EMTs showed up.
The biker was scraped up pretty well. He also started the ‘The car ran a red light’ bit. I told him that the car had a green light. I spoke with the other witnesses and everyone agreed that the biker was at fault.
That boy is gonna be hurting tonight.
But damned, if that wasn’t cool*.
*Since no on got seriously injured that is.
