As a result of the collision, Huggins succumbed to fatal injuries. Shafer was said to have minor injuries. Right now, factors surrounding the crash remain unclear.

There are all kinds of reasons a crash like this can happen, and it's important that there be proper investigations into complex possible factors, such as mechanical issues or road defects. I know people are often quick to blame motorcyclists just because they think all riders are dangerous, but my hope here is that folks will avoid jumping to conclusions since we don't have all the facts. If nothing else, it's important to consider the families involved in these accidents and whether or not they're getting the answers they deserve.
