Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

An unfortunate accident, to be sure.

What advantage(s) do you see in using the Velomobile rather than a more typical bicycle?

I think the fiberglass shell did a lot to protect Pierre, and if he had been riding a more typical bicycle, he might be dead.

Sorry Pierre, I know your English isn't very good but I'm curious of the outcome? Was the driver found liable? Did Pierre get hurt? Did he get compensated? Can anyone translate the information from the video?
