This is the car that hit my motorcycle
Front right fender
This isn't that different from the last view I remember ;)
I ripped the bumper off.. Front left
Again.. Impact
The squarish dent in the fender is right where my motorcyle dove straight into the front of the car
Left side
I'm not sure how this got damaged since I hit the front right of the car and went over, though I'm told the car slid 20 feet and landed right next to me, it's possible it hit the van that I hit with my body.
Airbags
Interior Rear
Unscathed
Front left again.. Airbages again
Van
This is the van that I flew into
Door
It's hard to see the depth of the dent, it looks just like a ripple on a photo
Door
again..
Interior
Glass strewn about
Shrapnel
Evidently some piece of something flew into the van and hit the #5 preset on the radio and broke the button
Shrapnel
And something else flew in and smashed part of the dash
Arm1
On my left wrist I broke my distal radius and needed surgery. These pins were sticking out of my arm holding the bone in place.
Arm2
Notice the lovely bruising - this was actually a few weeks after the accident.
