This happened back in April of this year.  Story behind the pics:
 








Tulsa - A Broken Arrow man was severely injured early Tuesday morning after a motorcycle accident on Highway 169 near 81st Street .
Witnesses say the cyclist was going faster than 100 miles per hour when he crashed into the back of a semi truck between 81st and 91st Street at about one o'clock Tuesday morning.


Investigators say evidence shows the cyclist was going about 120 miles per hour at the time of the impact. It took the truck driver more than a quarter of a mile to come to a stop. When he did, he stepped out of his rig and found the motorcyclist lifeless at the back of the truck.


"The truck driver was not hurt," says Captain Matt Kirkland. "He said that the impact was so strong that he thought he was hit from behind by another truck."


Officers said there was no indication that drugs or alcohol played a factor in the accident.

And i still don't know why the hell they decided to take photos instead of helping him out of there....

Death mostly happens for a reason that is sometimes beyond our comprehension. So it wasn't really your fault.

Maybe everyone else is lucky that he didn't cause a greater accident and got other people killed too.

I'd say 'Unlucky much', but Luck is not a factor if you're stupid enough to ride at 120mph on a busy road at night.
