Default Broken but Here

It looks like we might be in the running for a “Broken but Here” award at WOG.

Yesterday, on our way to Pine Mountain, a driver came down an entrance ramp and did a self inflicted pit maneuver using our coach.

He clipped the right front corner of our coach near the entrance door, pivoted crossways against our front bumper, slid across the bumper and ended up sliding down the driver’s side all the way to the drive tires. From there, he spun across two lanes of traffic and into the guard rail cables in the center median.

The good news is that he didn’t appear to be hurt and that somehow the cars that were running along beside me on my left, managed to miss him and each other.

The other good news was that he admitted to the police that it was his fault - said he didn’t see us.

Glad no one hurt ,but I didn't see him so how big do you have to be before he might see you, when we ride motorcycle you have to drive like no body sees you.
