definitely an idiot move, but at least he got through it, instead of staring at the van like a deer in headlights and wrecking.

Wow inches of a trip to the ER for sure. Guys like that give riders a bad name. Yea I drive wreckless sometimes but it's never where anyone else can get hurt. Then again it could of been him just not paying attention to the light at the lane change and hit the point of no return who knows

looks like he saw the light go yellow, but didnt want to wait at a red light since the vehicles in front of him stopped, definitely one of those, dont think, just act moments.

To be honest, I only saw one thing he did wrong- Following that Toyota too closely. Everything else he did was in "survival mode", which admittedly he handled quite well. Kinda curious though, why the hell did the car stop in the first place? If you pause at 0:14 when the car came to a stop, the light was still green.

The light changed to yellow at 0:11.

I just had a co-worker look at it and he agrees that the light changes to yellow at the 0:11 point. You can still see the bicycle parked on the sidewalk on the right when it first changes.
