Rider in the back seat - July 23, 2011, 08:23 AM

California Motorcyclist Lands in Van's Back Seat, Driver Unaware - FoxNews.com

ICTORVILLE, Calif. -- A motorcyclist who plowed into a minivan landed unscathed in the back seat, and the driver didn't realize it until he turned into his nearby driveway, authorities said. "We're calling this one a non-collision with a twist," Karen Hunt, spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County sheriff's Victorville station, told the Victorville Daily Press.
The van was slowing to make a left turn when the motorcycle rear-ended it Thursday.
Callers reporting the accident told authorities: "We don't know where the rider is," and there was concern he might have slid under the van, Hunt said.
"That's when it started to sound ominous," she said.
In reality, the rider had flown through the van's back window and landed in the backseat. The van continued to his home less than a half-block away, where he called out to his wife that he'd been rear-ended and needed to return to the accident scene.
As he turned around to back out of the driveway, he saw the dazed biker.
The rider's helmet absorbed most of the impact, and he only asked for an ice pack for his hand, Hunt said. He did not receive further treatment.
Neither man was cited for the accident. Their names were not immediately released.


Thats a lucky SOB... I love how the driver didnt notice and just went home ...

how damn old/drunk/whatever... was the guy driving the minivan? how do you not feel a bike hit your vehicle and hear a body come through your window into your vehicle? i'd like to hear the rider's side of this one.

This story sounds really familiar. I am either having Deja vu or something similar to this happened within the last year I think.
