I was having dinner with another forum member in our favorite restaurant and this was on the news. When we heard it was in Utah we said "bet he wasn't wearing a helmet". Sure enough.
This guy was freaky lucky and perhaps on more than one level. How'd he get under the car? If he had a helmet on would he have been able to slide under the car, or would the helmet have stopped him suddenly and broke his neck?
Still, I'll take the gear any day, as his luck was one in a million no matter how you look at it.
Looks like the only thing gear would have prevented is some road rash and the forehead abrasions. He's lucky he's not dead though.
I remember reading about a motorycle accident where the rider's leg was ripped off and sure enough the ATTGAT zealots started in! I'm ATTGAT but reallize that gear doesn't make you impervious and ride accordingly.
