Best part is, it was nobody's fault for the accident....
it was ruled nobody's fault? because it is the black car that lost control's fault for not paying attention to the cars in front of him causing him to lose control.

but yes we have had this one posted before....although it has been a while.

Watch the back right tire of the car..... He was hardly breaking enough to lock up the wheels and spin almost 180 degreese backward.....

He was not breaking hard enough to spin 180 degrees back at the cycle..... Are you sure he didn't loose pressure in a tire...?

The car is at fault, something did happen unexpectedly to the wheel but the driver was responsible for not being in control of his car. If you look at the front wheels of the car before the bike hits you'll see that they are turned sharply to the right that is what put him in the bikers lane and the main reason behind the collision.

Also the biker could have made a better decision rather than going with instinct. It looks like she could have accelerated pass the car once she saw the front end starting to drift her direction or possibly even swerved to the lane the car was in and follow the car until enough room to pass on the left. I was once in very similar scenario, ignoring instinct (the urge to stop in front of the car) and speeding up was the best decision I ever made.

seriously he pulled the E brake. its quite obvious to me . pulling the E brake trying to tokyo drift in traffic means yes its his fault.

as u can see the rear tires lock up (E brake) and the car does a 180 (impossible to do in a FWD car without using the E brake).

wow

Wow that's messed up. I agree that it looks like the ebrake was pulled (whether by accident or not?) since it's the rear wheels that suddenly lock up. Who knows why the f that happened.

As for the girl, I also agree with whoever said it looked like she could've gone behind and then left of the car. I've fortunately never been in a situation like that, but I can imagine it's pretty difficult to fight that instictive urge. That kind of shit makes me wish I had a better way to prepare myself for these things.

Scary stuff

another pointless thought

No new info here, but just thought this to myself. When I sat and watched the video at first I thought damn, if only she had reacted the other way and followed the left. Then I realized, I overlooked the fact that the idiot driving the car really could've prevented the whole thing by steering into the skid like you're supposed to.
