I have a metric buttload (2.2 SAE buttloads) of “stuff” that needs to be done around here and elsewhere, and only 2 links in the Feed. So a quick Filter and I’m off to do Muggle things.
Close to WoaB World HQ in the suburbs of Hell is this “salmon” cyclist. Cyclist crashes into car, dies at scene in Bryan This is why they have schools for this kind of thing. I’m talking journalism, not riding a bike. The cyclist was riding perpendicular (mostly) to traffic, crossing the road, not riding against traffic. Any slight vector into or away from the direction of traffic would have been inconsequential.
It’s unclear at this point what the mode of wreck was in a collision between a cyclist and a motor vehicle in this PA wreck. Cyclist Hit By Car On Blvd. Of The Allies The pictures show a bike impacted on both ends which indicates the bike hit something pretty hard after it was impacted by the motor vehicle. All this tells me is that it was hit pretty hard to begin with, and I can’t see if the front or the back had the harder hit, because my computer won’t play the video. I also can’t tell from the pictures if the bike was hit mostly from the side or directly front or back. Witness accounts say the cyclist went over the hood and into the car windshield pretty hard.
And that’s all I have today.
