Motorcyclist T-Bones SUV Driver Making Illegal Left Turn

This YouTube video, captured by a traffic camera and uploaded by the Excelsior Springs MO Police department shows 20-year-old Britt Hamilton striking the front end of  an SUV when it turned left in front of him at the intersection of  Crown Hill Road and Highway 10 on May 9th.  

After seeing his video, Hamilton says he feels lucky to be alive.

"I hit, and then went numb for a second. Then I started to feel pain," he said.  "I had a green light. I guess she got scared and slammed on the brakes," he said.

"My wrist is swollen. My lip is messed up a little bit. I got a little knot on my leg," Hamilton said. "I'm surprised I didn't get a broken bone or something."

Excelsior Springs police said the driver who hit the motorcyclist had a learner's permit.

Hamiliton's fiancee and his 10 month old baby girl was in the car right behind him when the accident occurred.

  1. 1. Motorcyclists should ALWAYS have the HIGH BEAM on during daylight hours. This alone has saved my ass MANY times.
    2. He should have been paying better attention, and cover the brakes when approaching ANY intersection, and look for turn signals – the suv had the signal lit.

  2. What Dan was stating I think is that the passenger in the car (the adult) was responsible for the SUV driver with the learner's permit. Apparently they were talking, not paying attention to the road. The motorcycle driver did nothing wrong.

  3. Jerry, the motorcycle driver had a valid permit and was an adult (20). In Missouri, the only restriction he has is that he must carry his permit when riding. Why ticket him and take his license? He had the right of way.

  4. That's pretty sad when the driver has a learners permit and the person responsible for them isn't paying attention as well…they should both be given a ticket an both loose their license…look twice save life people….motorcycles are everywhere!!
