    Looks like the truck was swerving to avoid hitting him, not realizing the biker was going to stop at the mid-stripe!

    Accurate report by Chinese media; biker not injured.
    He was however, sliced, diced and identified as tomato paste.

    Are you suggesting he had to ketcp up with the flat bed. Hard to immagine anything but a roach surviving that fallout.
    What about the tuk tuk that then entered the truck lane going opposite direction?

    The only way the scooter rider could not have been killed much less seriously injured is if the accident happened as it appears. Whereas the panels of glass did not strike the rider but only made contact with the rear of his bike, knocking it and him over. He was wmrely bried in the deluge of exploding glass fragments.
    I would say ot was the scooter rider who caused the accident but the trucker was at fault for not having any securement on the load what so ever. Plus the shipper wold be at fault for loading on so much glass that a proper load angle could not be acheived those panels were at less than 5 from vertical and should have been at least 10 Leaning against a stiffenough support frame that it would not waver from side to side under the shifting CG when making lane change or swerving.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    YEP. Like many accidents, if only one of the contributing factors were at force then it probably would never have happen. Truck was probably only going a mile or so, so laxed safety requisite protocol. Rider wobbled and stopped to turn left knowing truck was upon him/her. Truck swerved unnecessarily,glass vertical more or less, load not secured etc. Wonder if the rider swept up the mess!
