The video above shows the best scooter and motorcycle crashes for the month of April 2015. The first video in the collection starts off with a helmet cam clip where a scooter rider is waiting at an intersection. Cross traffic at the intersection seems to be proceeding as normal when a scooter comes into the screen from the left side. When the scooter reaches the intersection, it appears as though the scooter driver decides to make a left turn in the middle of the intersection. Unfortunately, there is a car coming up from behind the scooter in the lane to its left and the driver of the car is unaware of the scooter driver’s intent to make a left turn. The result is that the car crashes into the scooter sending both riders of the scooter tumbling to the pavement.
The next video in the collection shows a scooter trying to cut across in front of stopped traffic. The dash cam car sees the scooter trying to cut across and stops to let the scooter pass through. Apparently, the scooter driver thought it was safe to cross all the way through the intersection, but from the right side of the screen, you can see another scooter coming up from behind the dash cam car. This scooter does not stop and the two scooters end up colliding in the middle of the intersection.
The third video in the collection shows a motorcycle rider with a helmet cam approaching an intersection. It appears as though the motorcycle rider tries to make a right turn, but leans too far into the turn. The motorcycle rider goes down and takes a tumble along with the helmet cam. After a couple spins, the rider and helmet cam come to stop before hitting any of the other cars.
Watch the video above to see the rest of the scooter and motorcycle crashes for the month of April.
