"Investigators believe the motorcyclist was driving 'at an extremely high rate of speed' at the time of the crash, Gill said."

Oh yeah? What if he fucking swerved to miss a deer and went off the road? I guess it's just easier to blame the rider and speed for every crash.

Yeah, that's why they call them investigators. They investigate, and find out what happened. I can understand you getting pissed if the news was just speculating, but it's a quote from a investigator, no need to get pissed at someone reporting the facts.

That all being said, RIP to who ever the rider was.

I would strongly advise you to either take precaution/or your chances with the deer rather than a ditch.

I went to school with him.Was told he was seen doing 100 or so earlier that day by a friend.Then is riding to fast out there in the dark.I think this was rider fault this time.Sucks especially since it was avoidable.
