The video shows the first signs of the car that hit him 15 seconds before impact. This was after two other cars took to the other lane to pass him. I myself would be looking back to see if more traffic was coming. Maybe you can't do that bent over like shown in the picture from the news report. I sit mainly upright because I ride cruisers. You would have to untuck and look but after two cars I would be inclined to do that.

I find that position very uncomfortable however, because I'm fat, and it limits my ability to look about.

I can't find any points that haven't already been brought up in 10 pages, so I'm out of this one. I'll look forward to progress reports on his health and court actions.
