Commentary on Jeremy Squiers Accident on TX-73 in Groves

Motorcyclists don't always get a fair shake from the public or even from police when they get in crashes. It's true that some riders take risks, but the same can be said of any kind of driver. Similarly, many riders are perfectly safe as they travel. Some are even more cautious than car or truck drivers because they don't have much protecting them in a wreck. Unfortunately the safe riders are still lumped in with the risk-takers, and people tend to pin the blame for a motorcycle crash on the victim without waiting to learn all the details.

Is it possible that the victim made a mistake in Groves, like speeding or misjudging the curve where he lost control? Sure. Is it also possible, however, that there are other circumstances behind this crash that aren't obvious on the surface? Definitely. That's why it's so important to investigate carefully and learn all the facts instead of taking preliminary reports as the ultimate word on the matter. At the very least the victim's loved ones deserve to know every effort was made to find the whole truth. Anything beyond that would depend on what that truth is.
