Thats one cold-hearted dude. But since they're both at fault I reluctantly agree will him.
After thinking about this for a minute I'm surprised his insurance didn't cover his damages. Something is fishy in Spain.
They were both at fault in the strict legal sense of things, but keep it in perspective. The kid was riding a bike in the evening in Europe, where there are a ton of bikes and mopeds everywhere, while this guy was doing triple digit speeds. I think that most of us have been on bikes before, and while it is dangerous to ride in low visibility, cars shouldn't be going so fast that they can't see this. It is the responsibility of all drivers to be aware of their surroundings because unexpected things will inevitably happen. Sometimes they are unavoidable, but we all have a responsibility to reasonably minimize those risks.
There will be a special place in hell for this guy

This "Jeep thing" is like dating a really really hot chick, who is crazy! Its alot of fun, you spend too much money, your up all night ending up sweaty & greasy from it, your friends are jealous, you get admission into some sort of weird club... but it gets mad at your for no reason, throws fits seemingly randomly, has unexplained issues which it somehow solves on its own only after you try a bunch of different things (and spend a bunch of money) to solve it... and yet you can't resist getting in it every chance you can.
Another thing to consider is that 100MPH isn't as big a deal in spain as it is here. Europeans always drive much faster than us and believe it or not have less fatalities than us as a result. The typical speed limit on a highway is 130 km/h (80mph) but that is rarely enforced. The main rule of the road is to stay to the right so that someone comming up behind you can pass you on your left without you being in their way. Not a bad concept when you think about it.
