Did Just About Everything Wrong
I was stopping at a red light. I say stopping because I hadn't yet brought my vehicle to a complete halt. Across the intersection, on the sidewalk, coming in my direction was a gentleman on a bicycle. He is opposing traffic. He is on the sidewalk. He is helmetless. He runs the red light and hits a pickup truck making a right turn. He walks around dazed, holding his head. Front wheel taco'd.
The only thing he did right? He performed all of this in front of a cop car trying to make a left in the intersection.
Cop was doing a good deal of talking and gesturing. The cyclist was just nodding his head vigorously in the affirmative.
Since no one was hurt, it was a bit comical.
