Watch out!! They're out to get us! Imagine what would have happened if they were on sportbikes.

A few ccs short of a full litre.

That's why I always look both ways after my light turns green. I hope they heal well and that lady pays the price!

A worst case scenario that unfortunately can happen to anyone one of us at anytime.

I hope she pays the price for her stupidity!!

What a fuckin retard. She was probably too busy putting on makeup to bother paying attention to a red light. At least the accident occured right in front of a hospital.. I guess that's the best place to get hit if you're gonna get hit.

That is why I have the signature down at the bottom of my post for you do NOT count on any cage driver to obey the laws of the road even at red lights to them let alone metal STOP signs.

I believe it was two years ago when I stopped at the metal STOP sign of a T of a road & my truck took a slight hit from behind. The driver was vivid that I had actually stopped claiming he never stopped there.

Damage to his very new car was pretty extensive to the front left part & mainly the left portion. Not a mark on my old rusty rear bumper.

At the time the corner lot house to my right was with two large pine trees, the oncomming road, I would be rolling on to & turning left on was starting to turn & climb a bit so rather dangerouns & nearly got hit by a car coming from the right as I was banking out & taking the left turn.

The home owner had both large pine trees dropped just a year ago.

I try to look both ways ANYTIME I approach any intersection. Not just when the light changes.

I don't think these guys ever saw what hit em. Video said 5th rider saw the whole thing cause he had to stop. Which tells me the light was red on her for awhile. Looks like lady just drove through a red light at a fairly high speed.

wow, i cant believe it shook the 5th rider up that much to where he said he doubts he'll ride again...

i wonder whether they were wearing gear or not


i hope they have a quick recovery, and i hope the father pulls through.

that made dropping acid seem like a mild cure for boredom

^ I've had my dad's friends who stopped riding after they've seen a friend die on a bike. One of my friend's uncle had a harley and got side swiped by a car and hit a tree. He's paralyzed from the waste down and didn't have health insurance so people in our neighborhood did fundraisers to pay off his medical bill.

Wasn't there something like that in Mexico where 3 sports bike were hit from behind by a drunk driver (caught on vid). I remember seeing that last year and it scared the hell out of me.

The reporter said that they admited that they weren't wearing helmets, but said they'll change their riding habbits after this.

Sad story, and definetely good that it happened next to a medical center.
