What a 155-mph Motorcycle Crash Looks Like

Swedish police displayed the results of a crash where a motorcycle going 155 mph hit a car and killed both occupants.


The Swedish Police and Road Safety Department displayed the wreckage of this car-motorcycle collision at the Stockholm Motorcycle Fair. The rider, who had recently obtained his license, was estimated to be going 155 mph (250 km) when he hit the car, which was moving slowly through an intersection.

The rider never had time to react at all at that speed. The impact flipped the car and threw it 10 feet from the point of impact. The rider and both occupants of the car, all dead, were found in the car.

Something to remember next time your throttle hand feels twitchy.
