No. 6 road and Cambie this morning.
I ride a 2005 zx6r and the other guy was riding a Ninja 500. We were both along No. 6 road.
Red Light before Cambie, we were side by side and we acknowledged each other.
I am turning left to Cambie waiting in the intersection. then he went straight.. Next thing I saw as soon as he passed Cambie was he lost control of his motorcyle and dropped to the ground.
I quickly went to the scene. which is about ten steps away from where I am. I don't know exactly what happened but all I can think of if he is okay.
He was conscious another person came by and helped.
I called 911.
Another person came by and the injured rider asked him if he didn't saw him. After learning that he might be the driver that caused the accident ..... I did what a pissed of rider would do after seeing a fellow rider down...
I yelled at him... He said...
"I didn't see him"
I've heard this line so many times before... especially in Richmond.
Whats more fucked up is a FEDEX truck.. who was trying to get in the lane of the accident.. came by and said... "Can you guys move the motorcycle"...
Before I could react.. another witness just flipped and gave the driver the cursing he deserved.... What an idiot FEDEX driver!!! rider and motorcycle down and all he can think off is.. "Can you guys move the motorcycle"..
If anyone knows this FEDEX driver.. hope he gets fired!!! FEDEX driver was trying to turn right from Cambie to No. 6 road around 830 am this morning.
I blocked the scene with my bike until the EMT arrived... Despite the Strike, ambulance was there in less than 2 minutes... KUDOS to them!!
Just got a phone call from the cop.. Rider was okay..
Fellow riders be safe.....especially in intersections...ESPECIALLY in Richmond.. THERE I SAID IT!!!
I ride to work in that same street everyday .Its always like a war zone riding in Richmond.. It could have been me....
BE ALERT... STAY SAFE AND DON'T TRUST THE ROAD..PAN LEFT, RIGHT AND CENTER..
SCREW YOU FEDEX DRIVER!!
