Police haven't released many details surrounding this crash, and that lack of information is usually prime opportunity for people to fill in the blanks with their own assumptions. The problem with an accident like this is that a lot of people hold a negative bias toward motorcyclists and tend to make the baseless claim that the motorcyclist probably caused the accident.

It's a common misconception that all motorcyclists are dangerous drivers. We all know the biker barreling down the highway, weaving in and out of traffic, and going around a line of cars on the shoulder. However, these motorcyclists are the bad apples that are spoiling the bunch. The truth is that most motorcyclists are very safety conscious drivers who understand how vulnerable they are to other larger vehicles.

It's too early to tell what happened in this accident, but there are people out there who might not even realize they themselves hold this prejudice against motorcyclists. It's an issue that comes up a lot in this line of work, and it's something that needs to be addressed. The article below is a good resource for learning how this negative bias can affect motorcycle accident victims following a crash.
