Commentary on Ernest Newton Laney Motorcycle Accident in Milam County

My main concern when folks come to me about crashes like this is that the incident didn't get the attention it deserved. Unfortunately, people tend to be pretty biased against motorcyclists, and even authorities aren't safe from these preconceptions. While folks tend to conjure up visions of reckless daredevils in their head, I know from experience how many things can cause a safe, responsible rider to lose control. If authorities aren't setting their bias aside for this incident, it may require more thorough independent investigations to ensure this man's loved ones get the attention they deserve.
