Biker almost killed by idiot driver

Damn, I don't ride, but this video scares the crap out of me. Be sure and watch the video to the very end.

1. Nice where that car ended up. Beautiful justice.

The only thing that could be better is if the occupants of that car all got injured just badly enough that they'll be human vegetables in a really shitty care home for the next 30-40 years.

Gee, I wonder why you're not supposed to fucking pass when there's a fucking double yellow?

2. Maybe the driver just lost control of the vehicle for some reason

For example, a tire might have blown, or the driver might have had a seizure.

3. The scenery looks a lot like my home area

Northwest Arkansas, or perhaps Northeast Oklahoma or Southwest Missouri

6. been there done that (but not on a bike...)

driving down a two-lane highway, double-yellow lines. Eighteen-y/o in his dad's Mercedes tries to pass a guy coming out of a curve. I saw him coming at me, so I swerved to the shoulder. He saw me a split-second later, and headed for the same shoulder! All I could do was head for the ditch. He sideswiped my car, wrecked the whole driver's side before I went into the ditch, about 5 feet deep, and rolled onto passenger side. Fortunately I wasn't hurt, and neither were my two nephews who were in the car with me. The kid driving the other car was OK, too--but he wound up not only paying for my damage ($2700), but about $600 in fines too.
