How About Crashing a Bike and an Ariel Atom into a Car Stopped in a Blind Turn?

The day could have ended very badly for a rider, the driver of an Ariel Atom and the driver of a third car, but this time, all three have been incredibly lucky. The video you’re about to see after the jump might be a bit too intense for some and can cause arguments with your folks if family sees it, but frankly, this is what happens on the street almost every day.

Some riders would speed, while other motorists would fail to understand how dangerous some of their actions are for the rest of the road users. It’s hard to determine to what degree these three fellows are responsible for the incredibly close shave depicted below, but frankly we’re thrilled to see all of them living to tell the story.

For starters we have to admit that both the rider and the Atom driver were a bit too playful. That is they were a bit too fast for the road layout. It may of course be that they knew the road and felt somewhat safe with the low traffic. However, dismissing any obstacles which might appear on such a road was definitely not the smartest choice, and this video serves as proof for the claim.

On the other hand, the car stopped just after a blind turn is almost like a landmine in the middle of the road, a tragedy waiting to happen. Excepting the (real) possibility that the vehicle’s transmission had seized up completely seconds before the bike arrives, thus making the car impossible to move, the driver is a moron.

All vehicles do break down but on such a road not hurrying to take the car off the asphalt strip is the shortest way for involuntary manslaughter or worse, let alone the danger the occupants of the car are in. Basically, even though a truck would not have traveled at the speed of the bike or the Atom, it would have been impossible to avoid the collision… and the outcome would have most likely been flagged for gory content.

Still, incredibly lucky fellows, and especially the rider, for having a free lane to swerve in. I don’t even want to imagine how things would have looked with an incoming car in the picture…
