It was a recipe for disaster.
A motorcyclist, riding without a helmet or an endorsement to drive a motorcycle. A driver, getting behind the wheel with a suspended license and not paying full attention to oncoming traffic.
They collided, but what happened next is incredible and (thankfully) not what you'd expect.
The Clearwater Police Department posted a red-light video of the incident (Watch the left-hand side of your screen).
Everyone walked away unharmed, and the car's driver was cited for an improper left turn.
Let's call this an example of what not to do and be thankful it turned out the way it did.

This could have ended very badly.
