    eric….i think from further evidence it’s the biker on his pocketrocket hitting speeds of 80-100 kph that was the catalyst here.

    Re: Eric
    So someone driving a BMW makes them a “DOUCHEBAG” and implies poor driving? Two people died in this accident FYI. Comments like yours do nothing to resolve or console but instead assume blame where it is not deserved. Learn the whole story before you make such ridiculous conclusions and sound like a real “DOUCHEBAG”.

    Also, “CEL” is not a word. Nice try.
