    • do you realize the trauma of being hit from behind on a motorcycle at a high rate of speed? ask any emt or fire rescue worker or law enforcement officer about helmets and bad motorcycle crashes. Yes they save lives but most of the time reality is what it is.

    • Don’t care if biker was doing 20 or 55. There is NO EXCUSE FOR REAR ENDING & KILLING HIM !!!! When bikers speed people bi**h , if they go slow to enjoy you folks want to bi**h.

  • My condolences to the family of the deceased man. RIP sir. 🙁

    I hope they throw the book at JUSTIN HOWARD. However, & unfortunately,
    they most likely won’t charge him with 1st degree MURDER!
    He will probably be charged with vehicular manslaughter?

    Anyone else have an opinion on the pending charges?

  • Another motorcycle death. Sure doesn’t seem like riding a bike is worth dying for.

  • Another accident happened tonight on 52 and it’s partially closed again

  • THINK TWICE! LOOK OUT FOR BIKES!! Another bike casualty. RIP rider.
    Cagers please look out for bikes and riders. Not all of us drive crazy and there is no excuse for hitting a slower moving biker from behind. The young man could have been texting and I’m not saying he was. That’s just an example of how it could happen. PAY ATTENTION TO THE ROADS!!

    • If I were to correct your post I would change “slower moving biker” to “slower moving vehicle”. RIP biker hit from behind.
