after collision, cyclist survives, MV occupant dead

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/uk...6908-21265014/

Student hit by corpse thrown from speeding car

Apr 9 2009

A cyclist was knocked out after being hit by a corpse thrown from a speeding car.
Student Wu Dan, 16, was riding home when the incident happened.

His uncle Yun Tsui said: "A car passed and a package came flying out the door. It had a dead woman inside. My nephew was very upset."

Police believe she was the victim of a car accident and was being dumped by the driver who had hit her in Dongyang, eastern China.

CB, the helmet thread a little too slow for you lately? The chances of me being hit by a flying dead body while riding my bike are a little slim.

I'll bet that the corpse wasn't wearing a helmet.

Good job on the thread title closetbiker. %100 factual while deliberately leading readers to believe the motor vehicle occupant was killed by a crash with a bike. I'm impressed!

No, no. It happens a lot more than you would expect.


I mean, I never expected it would happen and look, it's already happened once.

You know how to tell a happy bicyclist from a unhappy one, happy ones have bugs in their teeth.

I suprised they even tried to dump the poor victom of the hit and run, since China has like 10x more MV fatalities than in the US!

sarcasm on/
Impossible. MV fatalities are strictly a western imperialist phenomenon... along with AIDS and other symptoms of western moral decay.

None of those things exist in the PRC.
