Van hits bike intentionally?...van loses! CRAZY! Ok this is the most amazing crash I've heard of. It happended to a buddy of mine a few years ago in Taiwan. He was riding a CBR 929. They were in the mountains doing twisties for awhile and having a good time. Then later he's doing about 80 km an hour and there is a van coming in the oncoming lane...at the last possible moment the van swerves to hit him dead on...head to head! The van was also doing about 80...so that's a 160 km an hour collision with a van...head on. So what happened? Van loses it's front end bounces back across it's own lane and onto the shoulder. Bike bursts into many pieces...pieces of the bike were still landing after the rider had stopped slidding.

The pic was taken less than 2 minutes after the collision.

So what happend to the guy in the van? He died. Wasn't wearing a seat belt...both lungs crushed on steering wheel...drowned on his own blood. What happended to the guy on the CBR? Not one freaking scratch! He had some bruises on one of his hips...and that's it. Blows my mind. He was wearing full leathers of course...another reason why a good helmet...and at least a jacket are essential. Van hits bike head on....biker, not a scratch...cager, dead. P.S. Yes, the license plate is american....they are decorative. At the time of the accident all large displacement bikes were illegal (plateless) in Taiwan.
