There’s a lot going on here, in only 45 seconds of video. Warning: this video isn’t graphic (no blood), but it does show a motorcyclist getting hit by a car, from the motorcyclist’s point of view. So there’s that.
Here’s what we know:
– Michael Crane was trying to exit the highway on his motorcycle
– he was hit by a van
– the van did not stop
Here’s what we don’t know:
– was it intentional?
There is an internal office debate right now about that last point. Crane, in the YouTube comments, believes it was:
Are you people out of your minds!!!! I was hit by a van intentionally. Ok ok let’s back up and go over every side of this… Say I wasn’t doing a wheelie the van would have hit me regardless… But since I was let’s go over that… If the car TRULEY didn’t see me and it was a legit accident why wouldn’t the van stop and make sure I was still alive…? Because it wasn’t a accident it was on purpose… To all the people saying they would do the same… Who are you to take the law into your own hands… What are you a modern day vigilante? Go dress up as batman and attempt to fly. One crime doesn’t justify for attempted manslaughter and fleeing the scene of a accident which are both felonies. Watch the video and pay close attention to the shadow of the van… he hit me on purpose left the scene and could have killed me but I got what I deserved??? I understood when posting this that a lot of keyboard badass would have something to say, but seriously wishing death on me for doing a wheelie… What your saying is you hope everyone gets ran off the road and die every time they run a red light speed don’t use a turn signal or break any kind of the law. I hope you find the stick up your asses and somehow manage to pull it out. Have a good day and happy hunting to kill all the disobeying citizens of the world.
The video was posted over the weekend. Watch for yourself:
