In the car in Melbourne with my brother today waiting to turn right and there was a guy on a bike in the left lane and we are stopped at the lights. I commented to my brother that he is game only wearing blundstones instead of riding boots etc and the lights turn green and we start to head off. Heard an almighty crunch and looked up and saw the bike spinning off the side of the road up ahead. We pulled over and go to help - a car had come out from a side street without looking and smacked straight into him and he had gone over the bonnet. Luckily he wasn't in a pool of blood or badly mangled but was just laying there not moving. I asked him where he was hurt and he said his back. Made sure he didn't move and that nobody else tried to move him and turned his bike off as the engine was still running and there was petrol spilled out everywhere. Front wheel and forks where broken so you couldn't stand it up and wheel it away. The knob jockey car driver stands in the petrol and tries to light a smoke. Cops and ambulance were called and a few of us were trying to ask the guy a few questions to see what state he was in. He didn't know his name or age but was answering some other basic questions. Cops and ambulance arrived pretty quick and took him off and got statements off everyone. I hope he is alright but it highlights the need to wear better protective gear, he had draggins and a basic leather jacket on but no built in padding or anything. Hopefully his back is alright, he was able to move his feet and fingers etc so he should be.
