Motorcyclist Accident West Loop 289 26th in Lubbock, TX

There isn't much information about what happened here, and I can only hope steps are being taken to give the crash thorough attention. A concern that years of experience gave me is folks overlooking motorcycle wrecks because they're quick to just assume the motorcyclist did something wrong. Is that possible? Certainly, but bias simply has no place in a traffic wreck investigation. There needs to be clear evidence to tell the story, especially for those who can use that evidence to get the help they need. It remains to be seen, then, if officials are handling this incident with prudence or if there needs to be more thorough independent investigations.
