    Just to get the facts straight my dad was in his lane and was not passing any cars the car he was beside was in the turn off lane.And let us not forget the woman was cited for failure to yield.So maybe if SHE was paying better attention my dad would still be alive today.

    what is wrong with you people? she took her son to the doctor. she was off work and doing what she needed to do for her family. it was sad very sad for the other family.however her son was in the car and she tried to help in anyway she could. AGAIN SHE WAS NOT ON THE PHONE OR TEXTING. SHE WAS IN NO HURRY SHE WAS SPENDING TIME WITH HER CHILD! MAYBE YOU SHOULD THINK THIS COULD HAPPEN TO ANY ONE OF US AT ANYTIME

    I'd say this woman was in a hurry and possibly texting or talking on her phone but not paying a bit of attention to what was going on around her. Motorcyclist are at a higher risk of danger in a accident we all know that but if you ride them properly and other drivers pay attention it would cut down on accidents.

    The accident was just that...an accident. It was in the early afternoon, and two cars were each trying to pull into the opposite two lanes to cross. The motorcycle (which is obviously less visible) pulled from behind one of the cars into the other lane as that driver thought the lane was clear. ACCIDENT! I feel for all of those that were involved. Those cool little "cap" helmets do not provide the same protection as others. Everyone should try to be as safe as possible!

    Maybe motorcyclist need to pay more attention to what they are doing. It's not only the driver of cars that need to pay attention to the road.

    Everyone knows a motorcyclist risk of danger in an accident is higher than an automobile, You take that risk when you ride. I have a deep sympanthy for the family of this tragic accident, but when you ride or drive paying attention is important. On this day maybe it was the rider. who knows? to Kay, my sister is sick and mortified, who wouldnt be in this case... lets just get the facts out before everyone speculates.

    Actually, it is not a matter of motorcycles being difficult to see, IF you are paying attention. People driving cars tend to be looking for other cars, and a motorcycle doesn't register in their minds when they see them. They don't think in terms of different sizes of vehicles, in regards to closeness of distances, etc. That is why alot of times people hit objects in plain sight, they are only "looking" for other cars.

    I've had people look me straight in the eye and still pull out.Motorcycles are not that hard to see,by law our headlights are on as soon as it starts.people have the mentality that a bike is small and easy to stop,THEY DO HAVE GOOD BREAKS BUT IF YOU HAVE TO LOCK ONE UP YOUR ON THE GROUND AND ALSO I'M IN A CAR OR TRUCK AND WON'T GET HURT.I'VE HAD PEOPLE AT THE EXIT RAMP AT ROCKPORT TURNING SOUTH ON 21 START TO PULL OUT STOP AND THEN CONTINUE TO PULL OUT.IT ONLY TAKES MAYBE 3 TO 4 SECONDS AND THE BIKE WILL PASS BY,THAT SMALL AMOUT OF TIME LOST WILL NOT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE TO THE TIME YOU MAKE YOUR DESTINATION BUT MIGHT SAVE SOMEONES LIFE!! DON'T JUMP OUT IN THE ROAD LIKE DEER.REMEMBER 3 OR 4 SECONDS MIGHT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE!

    My heart breaks for the family. He left a wife, 5 children and several grandchildren. As well as parents and his wives parents,who called him son for many years. I don't know any thing about the woman driver. If it were me, I would feel mortified and sick about it. If thats true, then I say I feel for her, also. Even if I want to shake her for being a part of so much grief.

    i was there at the accident as well and this was not an incident where the driver wasn't paying attention the motorcycle came from behind another car as the automobile crossed into cvs it was a freak accident and you people need to think about the other people involved before you come on here and speculate about something you weren't even there to witness
