Authorities say the incident happened around midnight along westbound I-635 (Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway). The motorcyclist was reportedly traveling west at alleged high speeds when he collided with the back of an SUV on the ramp toward Interstate 35.

Commentary on Morris Myles Accident on LBJ in Dallas

Reports about this accident mention the motorcycle collided with another vehicle, but have no insights about how or why that might have occurred. I hope investigators can fill in those blanks quickly. How fast was the motorcycle actually traveling? Could it have had any mechanical or tire problems that kept the rider from stopping before hitting the SUV? Could the SUV driver have braked suddenly on the ramp for some reason? How was visibility in the area? Weather? Road conditions? Was the rider paying full attention to the road? If not, why not? Could any other vehicles have been involved but left the scene afterward? Is it possible the rider had a medical issue, or was somehow impaired?

These questions and others like them aren't meant to overcomplicate the matter or make accusations. They simply need to be addressed because without finding out all the facts of the situation some may be inclined to blame a reckless motorcyclist and give it no more thought. Even when they're the victims, riders don't always get a fair shake after these crashes.

That doesn't mean they can't make mistakes; there are many unfortunate examples to the contrary and this might still be another one. However, that can't be known for certain unless a more careful investigation is conducted. There's no way of knowing how many victims have been unfairly blamed for crashes they didn't cause simply because they were on a motorcycle at the time, but I wouldn't want this to be another one. Those biases rearing their ugly heads is a concern after wrecks like this where so little is currently known, so hopefully steps are taken to make sure the dots are properly connected.
