Can vital throw hit Pokemon that use fly?

This site said that vital throw doesn't miss unless a Pokemon uses fly or bounce. But when my fearow used fly the opponent (machoke) used vital throw and it hit my fearow. Why?

Nah, it doesn't hit Pokemon using Fly. Probably just a minor bug, you can check Bulba's glitch page for whatever gen you are playing if you want to.

I'm playing soul silver
maybe machoke was faster somehow so it went first, or possibly quick claw
umm ... Vital Throw has a negative priority, so it can't have gone first.
