It does not talk about "person who caused someone else to hurt themselves whilst trying to avoid a collision with the first person". If nobody was struck or collided with, does this statute apply? \_(ツ)_/
In this case, the person collided with the ground.

I'm not saying which way a Virginia judge would come down on this, but it's a reasonable argument. Just like if a person were driving the wrong way down a highway, and other drivers struck barriers or trees while avoiding the wrong-way driver, I would make the argument that the statute applies. The cars (not even persons) collided with barriers/trees.
