Hindsight is 20/20 and we make different decisions under stress. You did okay, glad you are okay.

If it ever happens again (And I sure hope it doesn't) I would encourage you to go a few miles then call it in. It's also a good idea to get off and walk around after a pucker moment, get that adrenaline level down.

If I genuinely thought it was someone 'out to get me' or somehow being aggressive (like road rage) and I was in danger, I wouldn't stop at the scene, but I would stop a mile later and call it in.

He smashed his car into a concrete wall, you came home and posted about him on an online forum in the comfort of your home. I think you won this one, just count your blessings and move on!

Fysl. Again take Romans advice. U were on top of ur game with this incident, dodging this bullet.
Keep on riding. Ride safe n always give ur family the biggest hugs n kisses everyone deserves every time u walk through the front door.

It was a single car accident, he wasn't hurt, you weren't hurt. You should forget it ever happened.

Absolutely agree with this advice.

Perhaps stopping to make sure the guy was ok or not would have been a good idea, but sometimes our emotional responses to such occurances dictate that the best thing is to just continue on. Most likely someone else stopped at the scene and called 911. Sure makes you scratch your head, though, doesn't it?

Yeah, I wouldn't have stopped either. I'm not one for holding grudges, but I'm of the mindset that person got what they deserve. You made it out okay and he is taking responsibility for his actions, whatever that cost may be. Someone cutting over like that isn't exactly trying to be innocent about their actions.

Just my two cents.

I think him crashing like that would wake him up. I hope the cops showed up and put his a$$ in jail. You did the right thing by not stoping. I'm sure he is still paying for his stupidity.
