Near miss today

OK, I was cruising to work today on a pretty busy 2 lane road. I was in the left-most lane flowing with the rest of the traffic enjoying myself. Up ahead I saw a large van coming from the other direction stopped in his left lane with the left turn blinker on. His intent obviously was to cross my lane to turn left. It looked like he saw me, so I didn't really pay him much attention. Right as I was passing him I heard a loud 'CRUNCH!'. I looked at my rear view mirror to see him and two other cars crashing into the space I had been only a second before. It looked like someone wasn't paying attention, and slammed into him while he was waiting to turn. Guess I got lucky today.
