That happens so fast, there is no amount of training that could save you, but that rider just got extremely lucky.

I should be on the look out for stuff like this.
I was gifted not one but 2 guardian angel pins. Both of which have left my coat. One in a wreck in Utah and the other at some unknown point.
So if a guardian angel won't ride with me, what chance would I have in a situation like that.

Ride in Russia at your own greater risk. that's what the driver who got the dashcam vid was speaking in the youtube post. The reddit post links to other horrible stuff in the Ukraine.

I've seen several Russian traffic vids. Makes me think they are are imbeciles. Too much vodka and no common sense. If we do have a war with them I wonder how they would fare?
