This is the helmet-cam footage of a motorcyclist who gets rear-ended by his own mother. The footage starts with them in a parking lot chatting about somebody they know who's in the hospital or had a stroke or an eye infection or something (I'm a bad eavesdropper), then there's three minutes of driving footage until, at 3:28, she rear-ends him. *shrug* Maybe she just really hates him.
The mom even ends the conversation by telling her son to "drive safe," and, with soon-to-be-painful irony, to "watch out for idiots."
"F*ck, Mom! F*ck," is his initial, remarkably astute commentary on the whole situation. He then follows that up with a more thoughtful "Goddamnit, Mom."
Mom explains that she didn't even see Jacob, her son, when she slammed into the back tire of his motorcycle. She's pretty upset and apologetic, but I think it's going to take a while for Jacob to come around on this one.
Wait -- she says she didn't even see a person on a motorcycle? That's terrifying. Maybe he's a ghost. Or maybe his mom needs to get her eyes checked. Or -- OR -- not drive distracted. You think she was sexting? I bet she was sexting. I had a buddy drive his car off a low bridge trying to sext and drive and I regret calling shotgun.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Dub, who doesn't even feel safe driving a tank.
