He Lived. Wear Your Helmet!

Motorcycle Lorry Crash Pictures 11. I got this email from my colleague, it has been a while, might as well you already read this email, but in case you didn't, this is something you need to stop and ponder. I will comment a bit about this road safety email based on my observation.

2. Introduction: A truck was traveling down the highway at around 1 o'clock in the morning near Tulsa, Oklahoma. Motorcyclist was traveling at about 120mph (180km/h) and ran into the back of the moving semi-truck. Truck driver said he felt the impact, and it took almost a 1/4 mile for him to pull over. This is what we found...

Motorcycle Lorry Crash Pictures 34. Holy Moly Poly! The head is just stuck at the back of the lorry. You might wonder why the rescuer didnt remove the guy from the lorry. You know the answer? I dont know, but from my humble opinion, it is either the guy was already dead (which implies that the title of the email is just wrong! haha). OR you know, you cant just remove a person from the scene without any consultation from medical expert as if u remove the guy wrongly, high possibility that the condition of the guy would be worsen and might as well be dead.

Motorcycle Lorry Crash Pictures 55. The introduction told us that the biker's speed was about 180km/h. So do you believe that? Maybe there were witnesses but how trustworthy these witnesses are? Even expert cant determine speed of a vehicle just by looking at it unless there are some reference point for example the expert know the speed of lorry before that severe collision. But based on my experience, the speed is relevant as I have seen my real friend speed up to 220km/h using his R1 motorbike! Anyway, to summarize thing, helmet is indeed could save life or at least if it didnt, it save your head from blowing out so that somebody will recognize you and your remaining is still intact. So what are you waiting for? Wear your helmet!

Update and Editted: He was DEAD, so my 1st assumption is correct. Follow this Link to Know the Truth
