Though the details of the incident are sparse, the report seems to imply the rider of the motorcycle was at fault. These early reports are notorious for going with the stereotypical narrative that motorcycle riders are reckless daredevils. It's this kind of image that some in the general public have in their heads that at times even influences the outcome of a police report. The best way to to get a fair shake in motorcycle accidents is to conduct a more subjective third-party investigation.
