  1. if he was turning right into Seminole how would the motorcyclist hit the front driver side of the car? I’m confused I’m familiar with the area, but I guess not that familiar :/ regardless it’s a sad situation… hopefully he’ll be restricted with his driving if he doesn’t get jail time 🙁

  2. If the accident was not involving a motorcycle, we would not hear about it. Accidents are called accidents for a reason. Do you see the picture. The driver of the car also has impact damage. Motorcyclists are hard to see. How fast were they going and were they wearing safety gear? Any loss of life is tragic. I wouldn’t immediately jump to condemn anyone, especially without all the details. I am truly sorry for your loss, but that driver is someone I know. He is one of the kindest men I have ever met. He is not reckless or irresponsible. I ask that prayers go up for everyone involved. So sad.
