This crash was unbelievably close to ending this scooter rider

So when stuff like this happens, we never know whether to call the people unlucky for crashing and being inches away from death, or the luckiest person on Earth for crashing and being INCHES away from death. Whatever it is, this man's life will never be the same.

It is unclear who was in the wrong in this close call, but we can say that the water on the road may have saved this scooter rider. As he tries to avoid the truck, his evasive actions paired with the slick pavement laid down the scooter just in time to avoid being crushed.
