Unfortunately, a lot of people will likely just blame the victim here without a second thought. With single-vehicle wrecks, things like alcohol, distraction, and speeding are common. As such, people just assume the victim was in the wrong. This bias is even worse when it comes to motorcyclists, who are often seen as inherently reckless.

But I've learned over a long career how irresponsible it is to jump to conclusions without knowing all of the facts. Even authorities can fail to look into things like mechanical issues, medical emergencies, road hazards, defects, other drivers that left the scene, etc. Perhaps people would do well to learn about these possibilities so they know why jumping to conclusions simply isn't productive, and it certainly isn't going to get a family the help or the answers they deserve.
