Beyond that, there isn't much information confirmed about the crash. I know from experience how important thorough investigations are after crashes like this given the possibility of unusual circumstances like mechanical defects or roadway issues.

Some, though, may be content to just blame the victim here. Despite not having all the facts, a lot of folks are quick to assume motorcyclists are reckless, and they don't have the decades of experience I have to know that's a grossly unfair generalization.

Is it possible for a mistake to lead to a collision like this? Of course—it's common, in fact. But just because other possibilities are less common doesn't make them worth overlooking. Tire blowouts, medical conditions, brake failure, faulty signals or missing signage, a lack of lighting, broken taillights—these are all factors worth exploring if a victim's loved ones are going to get the answers they deserve. Were those factors ever considered here?
