Mark Seawall was hit from behind by a drunk driver while riding his bicycle. He was knocked unconscious and didn’t know what happened. “I knew something bad had happened. I knew I had been in a bicycle accident apparently,” he said about the moment he came to in the ambulance. But now the news media claims the truck ran over Mark’s head and he was saved by his helmet!
If you’re naive enough to believe this ludicrous claim, consider these photos. This is your brain:
This is your helmet-protected brain under the wheel of a car.
See more photos and commentary about these types of claims that helmets can protect against rollovers by cars and trucks, see the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute page. There are more photos here along with a description of the testing.
