George Clooney MSF course

Im starting a GoFunMe page to raise $250 LOL!

so George Clooney can take the MSF beginners riding course.

The video of him hitting a car head on with his scooter is on the internet -

I dont know what he was looking at, but he was NOT looking where he was going - he ran right into the stopped car.

Are you sure his name is spelled correctly??
Is it George C. Looney?? Just wondering out loud.

saving everyone from searching: https://wtop.com/entertainment/2018/...rash-in-italy/

a bike in front of him swerved around the stopped car

George nailed it anyway.

How he was not seriously injured is beyond me. One report said he was traveling 60 mph AND hit a car head on. only sustained minor injuries? Crazy!

No matter what you ride. Just ride!

He clearly was NOT scanning the road ahead of him!

He wasnt going 60 at impact - he landed on the hood of the car

a long jump at the olympics can jump 25 feet running 25mph

at 60mph he would have sailed about 100 feet.

Maybe it was 60 KPH. But still... I am still surprised he wasn't more injured.

are you guys seeing a different video than i am? that oncoming car pulled in front of him leaving him with only 1 second to respond, no escape to his left, and very little room to escape on the right with the parked truck there. and he was in the left side of the lane. the other bike was able to miss because he had just barely enough room between the car and the truck and was already in the right side of the lane when the car pulled in front of them. this could easily have been a video of George laying the bike down because he didn't have enough time and room to squeeze between the 2 vehicles or him hitting the parked truck trying to get out of the way of the car that just turned into his lane.

Its hard to see exactly when the car started to pull into the left lane, apparently to make a left turn around the stopped truck... maybe at 24S on clock on the screen.

George hit the car just after 27S, and the car was fully stopped.

It looks like a very dangerous intersection, on a hill, on a curve...

No kidding. It looks to me like the Mercedes pulled into Clooney's lane to make a left hand turn... this doesn't appear to be Clooney's fault in any way.
