Bike Accident

I was out riding my mountain bike on Saturday on the crush gravel bike trail and was hit by a motor vehicle.  As I told the police people want us to ride only on the trail (we built it for them make them use it) and yet here is where I get hit.  I saw the gator coming and he made a left turn right in front of me.  Here's the problem with this.  First motor vehicles are not allowed except in the winter.  Second, there was no expectation that the vehicle would turn at that point since there wasn't a road, driveway, or trail.  I'm left with a shattered bike and broken body, great.  Yes I got hit riding in one of the safest places to ride in the entire county.  I guess that this shows just how dangerous bike riding is.
