Truck hits motorcyclist

I hope this guys buddies didn't beat down the driver this time.

Yes, I'm making a joke!
In all seriousness; I do hope the guy wasn't hurt too bad. Just bad enough to learn a lesson.

How DARE that jerk park his truck there in the way of that rider who was riding LEGALLY and SAFELY on a PUBLIC ROAD.

Just saying the default response before all of the 'stunters' do.

Oh I wasn't really wanting to extrapolate who was at fault. Just being sarcastic. Whenever these things happen, these sport-bikes doing 110 on one wheel down the highway, these guys always jump on and say everything they were doing was 'legal' because of some delusion they have about what's legal.

He may have been parked illegally, but regardless of which way he was facing, this kid would've still hit him. Had he been on two wheels riding defensively, it never would have happened. You are required to park in the direction of traffic so you can pull into traffic safely. The car (or truck) takes up just as much space forwards as it does backwards.
