Trena Luna Killed in Motorcycle Accident in Odessa, TX

It's not entirely clear what happened here, and I can only hope the incident is getting the attention it deserves. Authorities mentioned the possibility of alcohol in recent reports, which is of course important to consider. That's especially true if a local alcohol provider illegally over-served the victim, since they could be liable under dram shop law. With that said, are other factors being considered?

A concern I have in these situations is whether or not the accident is being looked into with an unbiased eye. Too many people are quick to blame motorcyclists just because they assume riders are all reckless daredevils. I've helped enough riders and their families to know that, while those riders do exist, most motorcyclists are incredibly responsible. In fact, they tend to be the victims of larger vehicle drivers not keeping a proper lookout for them. Could the same be true here? It may take more thorough independent investigations to ensure the evidence can speak for itself.
