Isn't this the classic motorcycle accident? Car pulls out in front of you, turning left, ... - They maybe look left, look right, then they just go. (Maybe they figure they're turning left and will be looking left again. ?) But man, you gotta look left, look right, left, then go, and double check the right. Gotta be vigilant behind that wheel!!
I've almost been cut off a couple times with the same scenario. (Don't know if it's exactly the same as your crash Ridealot.) Obviously that driver did not know how to drive, and with no valid insurance or license. That's awful!
Glad you are doing ok. And glad you came to the Star forum.
Keep moving, learning, loving, and living.
