But there ain't much you can do to prepare or avoid this kind of sudden situation.

When I read the article, I was thinking to myself there must not of been any type of shoulder. Then I watched the video and was proved wrong.....there was a pretty big shoulder. One would think the driver would of swerved right, not left. No matter how you look at it, very bad situation.

Situations like this is almost unavoidable. I read the comments at the bottom of the article and some people are saying that they read elsewhere that there was alcohol involved from the white car that crashed into the bikers.

Read from BARF yesterday, the car that tried to avoid hitting the hHonda swerved onto sandy shoulder, lost control and hitting the bikers.
