Speeding GSX-R and R1 Both Crash into the Same Car

Sport bikes are awesome fun, this goes without saying, but riding them hard on public roads comes with very high risks. What some riders seem to refuse to understand is the altogether simple fact that when doing 100 mph (160 km/h) or more near a junction forfeits any right of passage, and in case of a crash, they are the ones with the biggest damage, whatsoever.
Here's a footage of two fellow riders doing close to 100 mph as they ride through a rather busy neighborhood, and just like we could have sworn it would happen, they crash into a care, right in the middle of the road.

Is the car driver to blame? We'd rather be the devil's advocate and say no: if these two would have come with less speed, he'd have had enough time to pass, and they could have braked better, maybe avoiding the crash altogether. If the riders speed like crazy, no Think! campaign can save them.
