Commentary on Jesse King Accident in Austin County

It's not entirely clear what happened here, and I can only hope the incident is getting the attention it deserves. 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, unfairly assuming they're all reckless daredevils. I've helped enough riders and their families to know that, while those riders do exist, most are actually quite responsible on the road. Between knowing they don't have safety features to protect them and being aware that other drivers rarely keep a proper lookout for them, many are even overly cautious.

So did the rider in Austin County make a mistake, or did something else--something harder to detect during a preliminary once-over--cause his crash? It may take more thorough independent investigations to ensure all the facts are uncovered and the evidence can tell the story.
