I agree because he seemed to be in a bit of a hurry. (Did it happen on the German autobahn?)

He had a closer and probably better view of the other vehicles than the camera had.
(He also had the audio, which we do not have. And he was piloting a narrow vehicle.)

And I've found that most liter size Pans, when warmed up, cook well.

The weird thing:
the footage origins from a police dashcam... (used in unmarked vehicles and cruisers)
seems they already had an eye on a car further ahead...
But why did they give way to the motorcycle? (maybe to cash an even bigger ticket from the rider?)

Did Martin know that from the German title, which is "1000 Schutzengel - Mega Crash und der Biker mitten durch" ?
The police at least seem to have had their camera turned on at the right time: the white van seems to have collided with a parked or slow moving car that was not on the road's "shoulder" the way it should have been.

Any good motorist outside the UK knows that: Slower traffic should keep to the right - even if that "slower" traffic is going the speed limit. (Brits will please substitute left for right.)

Also it is not advisable to pass a police car that is doing the speed limit even though it had just moved to the RH lane or LH lane for the UK and others

LOL! Yeah-right... like we need you to caution us about common sense and the Road Traffic Act... 8-)
I'm one of the biggest advocates on the "keep right!" regulation...
And indicating on this forum that UK resident motorists might not be as wise... might turn out kinda unwise... :lol:

Plain luck that the rider was not hit by debris/a vehicle... like we all have it from time to time and wonder about how on earth had we just made it through that hairy situation...

Why the cursed white lorry managed to rear-end the dark sedan, causing the whole mess, remains unclear... probably busy yapping on his cell, texting, etc...
