People are crazy.
We've reported on numerous hit and run incidents over the years. Remember the Infiniti G37 leaving a path of destruction on the California 120 highway, or the GMC truck that obliterated a Tesla Model 3? Well, the video we're about to show you blows those stories to bits. In it, we can see a Hond Oddessy giving a Honda CBR a push start down the highway.
Sparks are seen flying from under the bike, and the car shows no intention of slowing down. A passing car records the whole incident and finally gets to the abandoned bike on the side of the road. The bike is has been left a mangled mess.
The Californian rider explains on his YouTube channel what transpired: "I was driving home from work at roughly 8 o'clock going down the 91 Eastbound just past Main Street. I was in the second lane from the right, splitting lanes, and I didn't have any altercations with the guy prior to him hitting me. I was going faster than traffic, but there wasn't much traffic around me, so I don't understand how I got rear-ended," he said.
"All of a sudden I got knocked off my bike and I started tumbling on the freeway. After a while, I came to a stop and cars pulled over to check on me. I couldn't move. A guy helped me to the side of the road and the ambulance eventually came. I went to the ER and they gave me X-rays, MRIs and all of that, luckily I have no broken bones," he concluded.
YouTuber Will Panda was behind the camera filming the incident. "I saw a van coming up behind us with sparks flying and then we caught this passing us by. A hit and run driver in Corona smashed into a motorcycle, pinning it under his bumper and dragging it off the highway. We doubled back to see if we could find him but he had run his car into a fence and presumably took off running. It looked straight out of a movie, we could not believe it, we hope the motorcyclist is okay!" he said.
Videos of the aftermath reveal a completely destroyed Honda CBR superbike, its rear wheel barely hanging on by a thread. The minivan was later spotted abandoned by the side of the road. It had crashed into a fence. The suspected driver, identified as 25-year-old George Cesar Valentin, was later arrested.
