My hope here is that authorities in charge of the investigations are like most I've met—thorough and dedicated to getting answers for the family. I have no reason to believe they won't be. I only say this because I've had the displeasure of working with many investigators that were quick to blame teenagers without actually looking at the evidence just because they believe all teens are reckless.

On top of that, I've seen people make assumptions when it came to non-standard vehicles, such as mopeds and motorcycles. Whatever happened here, bias shouldn't have any place in the story. The evidence needs to be able to speak for itself if this young man's grieving loved ones are going to get the answers they deserve.
