If you can't stop in time you're following too close or, like this driver, not paying attention to what's in front of you. He had ample time since he left plenty of distance, unfortunately his eyes were following the bouncing tire.

Not to mention, plenty of space to turn left onto the shoulder to avoid the car.

Even if he couldn't have stopped (doubtful) we would've been able to reduce his speed significantly had he been paying attention to the road.

Do you drive? He had about 6 seconds of break lights to react, but didn't even slow down. Plenty of time and distance to avoid an accident at highway speed.

Or just switch lanes.
