Suicide Machine

Swedish Police estimate a speed of ~250 KM/h (for the U.S. folks, that’s 155mph) before the bike hit the slow moving car side-on at an intersection. At that speed, they predicted that the rider’s reaction time (once the vehicle came into view) wasn’t sufficient enough for him to even apply the brakes.

The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them. The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 3m (10 feet) from where the collision took place.


Saw that in another thread...but it got locked...but that's still insane.

Screw him.

Stupid A-Hole F'D-up someone elses life WHILE being stupid.

As a side note, a buddy of mine who flys ultra-lights was telling me about some new model everyone's (In the ultra-light community I guess) excited about that's powered by really cheap, low-time crotch-rocket engines. The reason the engines are as inexpensive as they are is because (According to him) they're getting them off "Totals" that inexperienced riders are killing themselves on while doing the same kind of shit THAT jerk was doing.

The Colorad State Patrol has a similar car/bike wreck they put on display from time to time.

A Suzuki GSXR t-boned a Pontiac Grand Am. But at a lesser speed. The bike was still mostly inside the car, killed the bike rider, but I think the car driver lived. Messed up, but I think she lived.

Darwin at his finest.
It is sad that two other people had to die
because of his stupidity.

Maybe if they wouldn't drive in little golf cart looking cars and drive SUV's like do they may have had a chance at survival.

I saw an '82 Magna inside of a Buick once.

The guy on the bike and the lady he worked with in the car both DOA.

Yeah your right but I just thought I had to say it.

Too bad the bike driver didn’t live so the relatives of the folks in the car could hang him from a tree.

That's where we got the motors for our FSAE cars too.
