Commentary

It seems like the media reports paint a fairly clear picture of what occurred in this crash, but that doesn't mean they have all the facts, or further, that the information is correct. They make no mention if the victim was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. If so, did the helmet fail to provide adequate protection? Did the helmet suffer from a manufacturing defect or inherent structural deficiency? What if the motorcycle suffered a manufacturing flaw? Even a venerable motorcycle manufacturer such as Harley Davidson found their product the subject of a recall. Not to say any of these potential factors contributed to this crash. But, when a life is lost, we should be certain a thorough investigation is asking all the right questions.
