Ouch. Sounds almost as bad as falling into lava.

You never know what is in the back of a truck beside you. Peeps driving with the window down; cyclists passing by could be hit by something awful.

It was a horrible thing that happened to that guy. I don't know what else to say except if there is someway to help this guy feel well I hope it is done.

How graphic. There are worst ways to die but not many.

Accidents are just random series of events. You could be walking and someone clips you on bike and you fall into the street and get your melon busted by a car.

If it happens I hope it's quick.

That said though I'm reluctant to wealk bear the edge or drive with my windows down for dear of getting a cigarette butt in my eye.

In the news report I heard, they said the tar involved was at a temp of 400F or 200C. Getting splashed with that would cause serious burns but, in effect, it apears to have been poured over this unfortunate guy :(

Best wishes to him and his family.
