Can a motorcyclist kick a car hard enough to make it crash?

strongest kick in the world? or attempted murder from the driver trying to ram the motorcyclist?

In a recent news story from Los Angeles, a motorcyclist is being blamed for kicking a car so hard as to make it swerve and crash into the median, then veer off into an oncoming truck, resulting in two crashes and a minor injury on the 14 Freeway.

Is it really possible that a motorcyclist could generate enough force, while maintaining balance, to kick a car hard enough to divert a multi-ton vehicle off its course? Check the video out for yourself below:

Clearly, you should never flee the scene of an accident. That's a serious crime and a dick-move if ever there was one. But, this looks more like the driver of the car trying to swerve into the motorcyclist in anger over getting his car kicked. That's attempted murder folks!

No doubt, if we had the story from the motorcyclist, we would hear that the car driver pulled some dangerous maneuver earlier, earning him the kick. Could a kick from a motorcyclist cause a car to steer out of control like that? Maybe the car had super-bald tires and a trunk full of helium? At highway speeds, there is a lot of forward momentum that a kick would have to overcome in order to cause the vehicle to swerve head-on into the median.

However, the driver of the car turning the wheel and pointing them at the median... that could explain things. I'm not a physicist, but I do know a thing or two about the laws of Physics, and unless that motorcyclist was actually Clark Kent in disguise, there's some problems with blaming this crash on a light kick to the rear fender. Bottom line, the crash was not caused by the kick, but by the driver of the car trying to ram the motorcyclist in retribution.

What do you think folks? Attempted murder or the worlds strongest kick?

    • Yep the car attempted murder, the Biker simply committed vandalism.

  • I have actually witnessed an incident just like this one, a biker was traveling down the highway and a truck changed lanes on top of him, didn't see the bike in his mirror. The biker kicked the truck to alert the driver he was about to kill him, the truck sped up and brake checked the bike, which caused the biker to flip into the bed of the truck. Long story short, the guy in the truck was taken away in the back seat of a cruiser. Maybe, just maybe people should not suck at driving and lean how to control their car... But hey, what do I know....

  • Seriously????

    The kick has had NO physical effect AT ALL on this. The driver whipped the wheel one way, swung it back and lost control.

    Sure, there was road rage but the biker didn't push the car.

    Fucking idiotitc demagoguery!!!

  • this is a case of lift off oversteer, then more of a case just terrible car control. props to the biker for staying upright.

  • There is a very simple driving rule: Your car goes where you look at. Meaning: If you look over your left shoulder behind you, your upper torso will turn left at some point (because your neck bends only so much) and your right shoulder goes forward. If your right hand happens to to be on the upper right side of the steering wheel, you will steer left. This is one of the most basic lessons in every advanced driving courses I have been to. "If you don't want to hit the deer - don't look at the damn deer!" . In this case my guess is that the driver was startled by the noise from the rear left, turned his head left, saw something very close, turned even more left and then (see above) steered left involunatrily. Then the driver recognized his mistake (steering left) and hastily steered right (which is a normal and typical reaction) but overcompensated.
