I was hit by a truck on my motorcycle. The driver was straddling the center line& had committed to the left lane by the time I went to pass him on the right. He suddenly came into my lane w/o looking or signaling & smashed into me at 30 mph, knocking me off. He was cited for an improper or unsafe lane change at the scene but told his insurance rep he never left the right lane (which is impossible, I could not pass a dodge dakota in the same lane as me on my bike). If he didn't come into my lane then I would not have been knocked off my bike with enough force to end up 15 ft away or hit hard enough to leave a paint transfer on his truck from the front of my bike. It was totaled. His insurance denied my claim. I only have liability insurance so the cost of my bike, towing & storage is on me!
