Commentary on Eric Charles Meyer Motorcycle Accident in Nacogdoches County

It isn't surprising to me that authorities are more concerned with blaming the driver than simply letting the evidence speak for itself. To be clear, could this be due to a mistake on the motorcyclist's part? Absolutely. Speeding, distracted driving, and alcohol are all common possibilities worth looking into--especially if a bar is liable for over-serving the victim. But people are generally unfair when it comes to motorcyclists.

Motorcyclists can be perfectly safe drivers, but folks have this image of reckless daredevils, so they don't even give victims the benefit of the doubt. It's worth conducting careful investigations into these situations. I have no particular reason to believe that a deer caused all of this, but I wouldn't immediately discount someone's word just because there may be more common factors to latch onto. It's unclear if equal prudence was given here, but I have my doubts.
