Biker hits semi @ 120mph



This is a true story. What is amazing is that he lived.

I have to blame this on my Explorer not showing the entire page.


So he did!

It's a shame.

at first I was like, "it looks like he's just standing there?" but then I saw the side view pic.......

at 120 mph I don't think a helmet is gonna do much. I've seen too many vids on theync.com (don't go to that site if you have a weak stomach)

Depends on what happended here. I heard in many situations, the bike would spin backwards if you were doing 200km+ due to hard breaking. In this case you end up hitting truck with your back. I was told that you would never walk again due to back injury. That is if you end up alive.

Omg, poor family... That's not a good way to go.

What's sick about this, is the effing sick people who post the pictures and details of the accident online for the world to view, and they feel like they did good of snooping into unfortunate deaths.... Stupid websites and sicko's that run them!

Let the people RIP and give the families some respect, and allow them to get over their loss... What happens when the mother, father, or siblings googles their dead son's name and stumbles upon this!? It's just a sick display of no respect from humanity.

^^ I disagree. Anyone who drives super fast like this guy does not respect themselves nor others on the road. Why should we respect them ?

I agree.

Anyone driving 125Mph has no respect of other people on the road.
