Clearly, ABS would have saved this fellow.

His head seems to be pretty intact, was he wearing a helmet?

After they were done with the vehicles they cleaned them out and reassembled the impact as it was found. They have used it for safety lectures. This is what I read some time back.

Malaysian plates on both vehicles. Looks expected from being run over by a loaded trailer.

This is the reason why i keep a wide berth of trailers on the highway, especially on the trip up north.

We have a few of those here, g-forces from the cages going through mixed with elevation and those cracks will open up. Always at the exact wrong spot.





You can't see it before you commit to the corner, and if your head is up looking through for cages in your lane you'll never see the crack.

Glad you're okay. That could have gone either way.

Let us know if we need to set up a paypal account and take up a collection, okay?

We can split it.

On a lighter note.

Some people... some people like cupcakes exclusively, while myself, I say
There is naught nor ought there be nothing so exalted on the face of gods great
Earth as that prince of foods... the muffin!
