There isn't much information about what happened here, and I can only hope that steps are being taken to properly investigate the events. Quite frankly, I find too often that people are quick to blame motorcyclists after a serious wreck, and even the authorities can fall victim to this bias. Families looking for answers should feel confident that investigators have the experience and equipment to ensure that the facts can speak for themselves.

Without those steps, there ends up being a situation like one I dealt with not long ago. In that case, police said a motorcyclist was speeding recklessly and weaving through traffic before hitting an 18-wheeler. The family was confused because they knew their loved one would never be so irresponsible. When we dug into things, it turned out they were right.

A witness was cited as the primary source of information for the officer's report. When we spoke with the witness, their jaw hit the floor. Apparently, all they told the officer was that the motorcyclist passed them on the left, then went to the right. In fact, the witness testified to going under the speed limit at the time of the crash. This corroborated our forensic findings, as well, so the police department had no choice but to admit their guy made a mistake and amend the reports.

Again, I'm not saying anything like that happened here. Police haven't said one way or the other what they think happened here, and there are plenty of officers out there who, given the proper time and equipment, would do a thorough job. However, when it comes to getting a family clear answers about the loss of a loved one, it simply wouldn't be prudent to leave things up to chance.
