Randall's bike/car accident is very unfortunate, but it's a very poor example of what you should do if involved in a similar crash. As he stated, both parties were clearly shaken by the incident and not in a position to objectively assess the situation. Always exchange information and always file a police report.

Whenever there is a bike/car accident, the most important thing to do is tell the cyclist what they did wrong.
