Man, that's crazy. How's your friend doing? From the condition of the rest of the bike it doesn't look like he could have been going too fast when it happened.

That doesn't explain the giant bend.

So the wheel giving out was a result of the crash, not a cause.

That was my first thought when I saw the bend in the rim, but I'm not a forensic analyst.

Either way, it sounds like he's ok (even if the bike's not), so that's good.

I highly doubt the rear wheel just snapped off at 35 mph. He wrecked and wadded the bike up.
