Very good news that Mr. Carling is recovering, and not more seriously hurt from the collision.

appearently he was trying to pass a car on the right that was turning right. The car had to be ahead of him slowed to turn and the bike rider just kept on riding. Bike rider at fault.
See this all the time. Dangerous bike riders. Like the guys who ride through intersection crosswalks the same way.
Anyways the bikers always lose when ot involves a car.
If you follow the rules of the road this would not happen. Bike lanes dont mean the car ahead ofyou must wait for you to pass before they turn right.
(portion removed). Guess yiu didnt catch that or maybe you just aint as smart as you think you are. Your welcone (portion removed) lol.

Bicycles are the number one emergency room trauma historically, I like bikes, you just have to know your risks and pay attention.
