Nice. Google will probably remove it shortly.

This is funny in that the biker was at fault and the subsequent images show the police chasing after the biker. These images are legal evidence of what actually happened and should be preserved if the case has not been solved by now.

BTW, it does look like the Google street car stopped to talk to the Police in at least one of the images. You can see it as the biker gets away in the distance as the camera stopped snapping for a few seconds.

This is common in Brazil. Go to Live Leak, lots of stupid bikers out there.

First time I have heard of a "hit and run" with a biker on a little 125 Honda, or what ever that was, against a mini van. So funny!

It looks like the biker was obviously speeding and lost control when he hit one of those reflective lane bump things that are popular in places where it never snows.

I saw a great video (on Live Leak) of a biker on one of these "crotch rockets" that got pissed off at a car driver, rode up beside the car, kicked the car door, and than lost it and skidded down the road.

In Russia (and Brazil), it's common for *most* cars to have dash cams (to prevent traffic accident fraud), so there is a lot of video out there.

VGT community should develop a mirror thing for preserving these classic street views as they can be fleeting :)

Well, when the Thumb changes, you can see Thumb History - what the old thumbs were...
