  • Very sad…
    I have a son the same age…
    But what happened?
    Will we ever know???
    Why do we get these headlines and no details that might, just *might* make is drive or ride safer??
    We don’t even get enough details to send a sympathy card anymore…

  • My heart felt condolences to the family and friends of this young man. What a sad loss.

    Frankly, when a motorcycle is hit, or hits as the case may be, an SUV going much of any speed, it doesn’t matter if the kid had a helmet on or not odds are the motorcyclist is going to die.
