WooooooooooW. That is straight pwnt. Im glad he is OK, and hope the bike can easily be fixed.
that is straight textbook though, it showed exactally what happend. If he is new, I used to do that. when epople were behind me, I would move to one side of the lane because of where they were, and woudl get nervous, and get close to the curb.

For the record,

Mesh ain't textile. Cordura would have easily prevented those injuries.
