Commentary on James Robert Mills Motorcycle Accident in Wilbarger County
It's not entirely clear what happened here, though folks are often quick to blame motorcyclists for just about any crash. They see them all as reckless daredevils who speed and weave through traffic. Those riders are out there, for sure, but plenty of riders are perfectly safe. I know that from experience having helped them and their families prove that they were the victims of factors beyond their control. Hopefully someone who will be equally charitable to those involved here has a chance to look into the facts.
