Commentary on Motorcycle Accident at 55th & Slide in Lubbock
It's not entirely clear what happened here, and I can only hope steps are being taken to give the incident the attention it deserves. I've often found that people are quick to jump to conclusions with motorcycle wrecks. A lot of people just assume that motorcyclists are always reckless. That can be true, and maybe that happened here. But jumping to conclusions isn't going to help anyone. There are plenty of drivers out there not keeping a proper lookout for smaller vehicles like motorcycles. Hopefully professionals are handling this so that the facts, not baseless assumptions, can say what happened here.
