I try to discuss motorcycle wrecks whenever I can on this blog because I've grown tired over the years of seeing everyone immediately assume the rider did something wrong. Obviously, motorcyclists can make mistakes. They can be irresponsible just like any other typical motorist. But too often, folks will just see "motorcycle wreck" and assume the victim got themselves hurt.
To be clear, I can't say what did or didn't lead to this crash. That's not my place. But if anyone out there is saying they know what happened here without having more evidence than authorities have made public here, they're likely just making assumptions. It's best to wait for there to be more thorough investigations so the evidence can speak for itself, one way or another.
