Praying for the family. Car drivers should be cautious, turn your music down because in reality you should have heard that motorcycle
He was driving over 100 mph she never saw him coming
I actually knew the motorcyclist, he was an amazing young man with his whole life ahead of him. It maddens me how other drivers choose to be so careless. May you rest in heavenly peace, until we meet again.

In neighborhoods with houses or apartment building ALWAYS LOOK AROUND AND GO AT LEAST 5 MILES SLOWER THAN THE SPEED. WHEN YOU back out open your windows and listen for cars or motorcyclists coming and going. Be extra cautious and go alittle slower please? God bless you. Linda
Stay off your darn phone when driving..
It’s so easy to spot you fools playing with your phone while driving. You leave extra space between you and the car in front of you while waiting for signals to change.
You drive slower than the flow of traffic and leave extra space between you and the car in front of you. This would be a safe practice if you were not on your darn phone.
If you voted for Biden you should probably just quit driving as you are beyond help.
That’s another biker killed on the road from a Motorist is not paying attention of the road. And will be looking at any violation or a charge in the death of the motorcyclist . motorist just says I’m sorry I didn’t see him it’s the same song every motorcycle accident the motors was negligent in his part not taking his time in look it’s just another murder on the street of a motorcyclist

I know i dont hear the car driver kpening his windows and go extra slow, look around… And go 5 miles slower than the posted speed limit.
I don’t hear it either.
How do we know it was the motorist’s fault? The article doesn’t Sat that. Investigation is on going. I’ve seen plenty of motorcyclists driving like a bat out of hell and taking way too many chances in traffic.
Now that’s what I call sharing the road!
