William Weatherford Motorcycle Accident Lubbock, TX

With a situation like this, it's very important to make sure people aren't jumping to conclusions. I find that people are offten quick to blame motorcyclists even when they don't have any details about a crash. Even the authorities can make this mistake. In reality, I know from experience how safe a lot of motorcyclists are precisely because people don't keep a proper lookout for them. Maybe that happened here, maybe the motorcyclist did make a mistake, or maybe there were extenuating circumstances neither driver could account for. That's not for me to say. My hope is simply that someone with experience handles things to make sure that the evidence can speak for itself.
