    “struck a car that suddenly stopped to make a left turn” BS!! Motorcyclist driving to fast to stop properly! News Staff must be a rider. Condolences to the family and hope the driver of the car is ok!

    Wow. Like you all know what happened. The writer is not pointing blame at anyone. He states that the car stopped suddenly. Period. How is it BS? Were you there? Did you see Mike speeding too fast to stop? Did you not notice where he said “Police say that…”? And Matatronking I have no words for how ignorant your comment is. This was a terrible accident and that woman had many friends. I dare you to say that to one.
