I was just informed of this. There is no description of the bike as of yet. Another left turn collision. RIP

Police say preliminary investigation indicates speed of the motorcycle was a contributing factor and that no charges are expected to be filed at this time.

The biker had to be hauling ass for the truck not to see him. This is a 4 lane road with a center turn lane.

I don't live far from that road and I know it very well. Although there is a hill, I wouldn't say it is blind. The truck driver being taller than a car, should of seen the bike. Only guess is that the truck misjudged the speed of which the motorcycle was traveling.

Quite possible. There is a difference between being seen and being SEEN. It's not unusual for drivers to concentrate only on objects within what they perceive to be the "danger zone". If you're looking up the road for oncoming traffic you think may be close enough to have to yield to but oncoming vehicle in question is traveling at twice the speed limit it's quite possible that it just won't register in your conscious mind because it is beyond the distance you are concentrating on.

The BIGGEST defense of speed limit enforcement IMHO is not so much to punish the one doing the speeding but to protect others that will not recognize the unusually high rate of closure.

On the other hand "Speed being a factor" is the biggest catch all BS statement ever invented. Well duh, if no one was moving nothing would have happened. I dislike it when they use that statement because it is assumed that "excessive" speed was a factor but that's not what was said.

RIP rider.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.
