Got hit by a pickup 50 miles from home after a 500 mile Deal's Gap trip. I tried to swerve to miss a white S10 crossing four lanes without looking on US72 near Scottsboro Alabama. He took out 3 of us coming back. Guessing he was texting. I couldn't believe it was happening as he slowly crossed the road towards us approaching and never changed his pace until I swerved right to avoid him and he gassed it striking me in the leg with his bumper going about 10 or 15. I was going about 60 when hit. Smashed my leg into the bike breaking several parts but not my leg. It is double its size now though.... Unfortunately Alex on a 2009 Monster ZX6R plowed straight into the side of the truck before having time to slow and is in an induced coma with multiple breaks and a severe head trauma. Third guy laid it down on top of himself as he tried to stop. Driver, a young man, said he never saw us but two of the three had our brights on and I watched him for about 4 seconds as he crossed the three lanes slowly like an elderly blind person or something before hitting us in the far right lane. I hope my friend lives. He is a 25 year old tender hearted rider. Never a bad word about anyone.
