With a collision like this, it's important to sort out the timing of everything. Someone merging into the path of a passing vehicle is often a red flag they cut that person off. However, if the motorcycle was going at high speeds or was otherwise being reckless, then it's possible they should have been able to avoid the crash. Sorting all of that out requires evidence, and simply relying on the authorities may not be enough to that end. Understanding that police rarely know the whole story can help show why experienced professionals rely on independent investigators more often than not. The same may prove necessary here.
