Oh, man, I just saw this.  First of all, really sorry for your pain.  And really sorry about that bike as well.  Hope you recover good as new, and quickly. 

That said, your video scared the ever-lovin' bejesus out of me.  Here's why:  You, like me, wear a Hi-Viz jacket and a Hi-Viz helmet.  That she didn't see you is completely amazing.  And completely horrifying.  Thank you for reminding me to ride defensively.  That video should be required viewing.  It shows riders how people just simply don't see us, no matter what we do.

Not sure why it should amaze you.  People pull out in front of firetrucks with all their lights going and high viz paint covering the whole truck.  Compared to that your jack and helmet are just a speck. 
Um, yea.    But it's still surprising.  It's still amazing.  Yes, I am quite aware it happens all the time.  And I am aware of the size disparity between myself and a truck.   Nonetheless, it amazes me every time it happens.
