   Thanks Des!

From an accident creation standpoint, it seems rather obvious that the VW transporter veered into the right lane to "sandwich" the VW into a parked 170S/Sb/DS, but the bicycle presents another factor.  I guess a bicyclist rode in front of the VW bus, causing him to swerve into the right lane to take evasive action to avoid hitting the bicycle, but didn't work. 

In the scene above, seeing the glass on the ground in small pieces, reminds me of how the old glass reacts, and happy that I spent the money to have front windshield duplicated recently with modern safety glass.  :)
