Chopper Wobbles and Crashes Hard

Even though most people who do not ride tend to believe that choppers and cruisers are the safest bikes around, here's one strange video showing that they're really no strangers from bad luck.
We really can't seem to pinpoint the cause for this crash, with the only causes we deem worthy of being considered being a brush between the car and the bike, sudden pressure loss in one of the motorcycle's tires or the way the car changed lines.

It's really hard to say whether the rear tire is deflated enough to cause such wobbling, but we just know that directional control in such conditions is prone to crashes similar to this one, with the machine getting out of control and very small changes to keep it steady.

On the other hand, a brush between the two vehicles could indeed cause such wobbling, but as far as the camera angle lets us see, there is enough space between the bike and the car to be skeptical. Or it could be that the biker drove from behind too close to the car and got scared, trying to pull away too violently.

Finally, some say that it was the way the driver changed lanes, thus cutting in front of the rider and causing him to brake hard and swerve, thus losing control. You can do some judgement, too.
