I was cycling near the curb straight down a 60 km/h industrial area four lane road with minimal traffic in the morning and a driver from the opposite direction is signalling a left turn to a side street, no traffic lights. I continue on as I'm sure he saw me with my bright red t-shirt, and then all of a sudden he goes for the turn, meaning he either did not see me or he is gunning for it. I full on crash into his passenger door with no reaction time to dodge him and dent it pretty bad, and my handlebar is bent sideways from my front wheel. Miraculously I come out uninjured, I imagine it could have been deadly if I went a bit faster or didn't brake. Thankfully the driver stopped and got out, asked if I was okay, and kept saying he has to go to work and wanted to know where I was going. I asked for his number but without my phone or anything to write it down I tried to memorize it; and forgot to ask for his name or even get the make/model/plate number in the process. The whole thing was futile without my phone, he could be lying about his number for all I know (or I might memorize it wrong). No doubt I am probably getting no compensation for my bike with just a phone number. Really grateful I had my helmet on even if there was no impact; don't want to imagine what would happen if I fell during the collision.
I'm seriously now thinking of getting a cycling camera to protect myself.
I'm just happy I am alive without injuries, and am reminding others to keep your phone with you wherever you go no matter how short the ride is. Never forget in the event of a collision, take photos, get a witness's number, driver's name, number, license and insurance policy number, and if you are injured, call 911.
