Even before seeing this, I agreed with the "Don't Split Past Trucks" advice. Yeeesh.

Lucky to be alive.

I saw one where a truck was stopped and a rider fell over trying to get by and fell under the rear wheel. The trucker had no idea and went as the light just turned green. The outcome was not as good as the above as you can imagine.

That one did not look survivable. Glad to see the rider was moving around after the truck passed.
Still not sure how.
....and yeah, I most certainly pick my spots when split past those things.
You will never, ever see me between the right side of any vehicle and a curb....ever.
