Beyond that, there is no clear information available. Frankly, there aren't many scenarios in which a truck rear-ends a motorcycle where the truck driver didn't make some kind of serious mistake. That's not impossible, of course, so I would discourage anyone from jumping to conclusions without knowing all the facts. I just hope authorities here are more prudent than some I've dealt with who see a motorcyclist and just assume the victim was doing something irresponsible. Regardless of what happened here, it's important to let the evidence speak for itself, and letting bias get in the way is just asking to let something important slip through the cracks.
