In the ultimate example of adding insult to injury, a guy riding a scooter in Taiwan got clipped by a car only to have the situation go from bad to worse courtesy of an open manhole.

It's bad enough that the dude has to be seen in public riding a scooter without the whole world witnessing one of the most unfortunate fails I've ever seen. I think it's safe to say the helmet protected his pride just as much as his head in this instance.
