My Ride: e46 facelift
Saw an black E30 with red BMW roundels turn right at a traffic light crossing the path of a bike and the bike ran straight into him doing at least 80. It was a horrible mess which I need not describe. I just wish the rider gets to see another day. The few milliseconds from when I realized what was going to happen seems to be etched in my mind in slowmotion and lots of 'if onlys'.
Guys/Gals please please please drive safely and take it easy on the road its ok to slow down a bit. That split second changed/ruined a lot of lives.

motor bike or pedestrian?
from your story it sound like an accident that could not have been avoided??

i dont want to sound unsympathetic, but ive seen way too many push bike riders pulling out of slip lanes without looking, through red lights etc .. so im not surprised when one finally gets hit ...

motorbike (sport bike like Assails). It could've been avoided most likely by the e30 which crossed the oncoming lane to turn right which is where the bike was going the opposite way. My guess is that the lights were probably just turning red for the car and there were no other vehicles in front of the car so he turned right quiet fast.
