Motorcyclist killed by motorist's stupidity

This may have already been mentioned on or around the day it happened.

The news story at the included link: http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/23/justic...?iref=obinsite, while dated Oct. 23, 2011, shows that even motorcyclists are not immune from idiot drivers. The fact that the guy was a Hells Angel member, doesn't justify the motorists stupidity.

I guess this may not get the single witness suicide swerve treatment that dead cyclists generally receive. Back when I lived near the site of that death the cops would have been investigating the other death. The Hell's Angels just aren't what they used to be, and that is probably a good thing.
