Yesterday, we had a really bad motorcycle accident in our little town. Out on the bypass, a bunch of motorcyclists were approaching the town at a high rate of speed. Evidently, the lead cyclist slowed to make a left hand turn. Just then, a cop drove by coming the other way. The #2 cyclist looked back to see if the cop was going to turn around. That's when he hit the turning bike at an estimated 180 miles an hour. Both cycles exploded on impact. The bikes and what was left of the riders (both were wearing helmets but were killed instantly) landed 240 yards from the point of impact -- that's 2.5 football fields.
This all happened in front of an elementary school in the late afternoon. Thankfully, the school had let out and there were no kids around. What on earth were these guys thinking? Both were in their mid-30's going 180 mph in front of a school. Both were riding pocket rocket rice burners.
