I don't think that had anything to do with target fixation.
He was coming through the dust cloud and you have to think their level of speed.
Everything comes up at least 2-3 times faster than ours.
You can see he tried to avoid and broke really hard, but probably didn't have enough time.

They said he bruised his lunge. It was a replay of what had happened earlier and they talked how the first guy crashed, that he has already been down several times this year and then the other guy comes and came down really hard. And the hard hit showed why he bruised his lunge.

Note to those of you that only watch the MotoGP class and skip 125s and 250s, you're missing out on the best racing and 'best' crashes.
