Than a Bike Ninja. It’s just not a generally successful survival strategy.
Late-night bike ride kills teen AP - SEYMOUR – Police say a pickup truck hit two teens riding double on a bicycle in the middle of the night on a southern Indiana highway, killing one boy and critically injuring the other. Police say the boys were riding in the middle of the southbound lane of U.S. 31 a couple of miles from Seymour when they were hit about 2 a.m. Sunday.
More accurately, riding double in complete darkness on a highway at night (with no bike lighting at all, apparently; a reasonable assumption given the location I suppose, but of course the story doesn’t mention it) will get you killed. And no styrofoam hat has yet been engineered that will mitigate a highway-speed impact, but I’m still surprised they didn’t bother to mention that at least.
And later, the second boy died in hospital.
