I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who feel they don't need to know the details left out of the report to figure out who's at fault here:typical motorcyclist, riding down the highway at high speeds, weaving recklessly in and out of traffic. Well, it's one thing if a portion of the general public hold a bias, it's another entirely if this bias is held by investigators. It's not really a fair shake to victims and their families if the investigation hinges upon such a stereotype. Thankfully, there is always the benefit of third-party, subjective investigations available to accident victims. It's better to do all we can to find the facts than it is to simply fill in the blanks based upon the few details in a media report.
