Satdiver Posted July 23, 2011 Share Posted July 23, 2011 Talk about one lucky SOB, and just one more reason you should wear a helmet, I am sure he would have sustained some pretty serious head injuries without it. Ride Safe, Lucky SOB VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A motorcyclist who plowed into a minivan landed unscathed in the back seat, and the driver didn't realize it until he turned into his nearby driveway, authorities said. "We're calling this one a non-injury collision with a twist," Karen Hunt, spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County sheriff's Victorville station, told the Victorville Daily Press. The van was slowing to make a left turn when the motorcycle rear-ended it Thursday. Callers reporting the accident told authorities: "We don't know where the rider is," and there was concern he might have slid under the van, Hunt said. "That's when it started to sound ominous," she said. In reality, the rider had flown through the van's back window and landed in the backseat. The van driver continued to his home less than a half-block away, where he called out to his wife that he'd been rear-ended and needed to return to the accident scene. As he turned around to back out of the driveway, he saw the dazed biker. The rider's helmet absorbed most of the impact, and he only asked for an ice pack for his hand, Hunt said. He did not receive further medical treatment. Neither man was cited for the accident. Their names were not immediately released. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
