This happened to me on 1/28/2015 as I left my parking garage to head home from work in downtown San Francisco at the intersection of Ellis St at Cyril Magnin St. I had just turned my helmet camera on (Contour ROAM) which is the starting point of this video. The driver of the car clearly blows his red light and hits me in the intersection at least 5-6 seconds after his light had turned red (including the 2 second delay between light changes). My heavily customized 2011 Daytona 675 was destroyed in an instant but I managed to land on my feet after getting launched into the air by his windscreen. ATGATT likely saved me from severe injuries or death, as I was able to walk away with bumps and bruises primarily. Currently it appears that I may have some tissue damage in my left knee. I'm in the process of determining and identifying the source of the pain I'm having with my doctors. The driver stopped after the accident and we exchanged information.

For those interested in what gear I was wearing during the accident:

- Icon Variant helmet
- Icon Automag leather jacket with built in CE armor
- Alpinestars Bionic Air CELevel 1 back protector insert
- Alpinestars SP2 gloves
- Fox Comp 5 Shorty boots
- My "Dashcam" Camera: Contour ROAM (Gen 1)
