Brutal Encounter Between Taxi and Bike

This is probably one of the most common accidents involving a motorcycle and a car: the driver steers to the left, barring the rider's way and a crash of variable severity resulting from this.
A big number of such accidents compared to the total collisions, this type of crash also comes with the highest possibility of severe injuries for the rider, due to the fact that the two-wheeler impact the car head-on.

Aside from launching the rider into the air, which is a rather lucky outcome, the motorcyclist also hits the handlebars and fuel tank with his upper legs and pelvic area in frontal impacts, contributing to even more substantial injuries.

Riding in a defensive manner is one of the things which can help avoiding such crashes or at least reduce the negative outcome, but in some cases evading such predicaments is impossible, due to the drivers misjudging the rider's speed, not looking for incoming traffic with enough attention or simply ignoring the bikes. And when the rider is also doing some mph over the safe limit, things end up really bad.
