motorcycle death (police chase) II

4-30-06
Police were trying to pull over a rider that was speeding and weeving from lane to lane on I-94 today. Rider lost control and slammed into retaining wall while exiting I94 onto NB I75 in Detroit. Rider died at scene.
Looked like he was on a newer Yamaha sportbike.

RIP
Is it worth loosing your life as well as the impact on your friends and family to avoid a ticket??

My brother in law saw this one, said the freeway was closed fro quite a while. It's definetly not worth the loss of life, just to avoid a ticket.

this has to be some kind of joke right? 2 in 1 week? What the hell. No wonder parents hate their kids riding so bad. This is all they see.

I don't feel for the idiot at all.

In fact I feel worse for all of the people that had to sit in traffic because this moron felt that he was more important than every other person using the road.

As for the 2 in one week -----> we are most likely only hearing about it because it is "news". In another month or two (when this sort of thing still happens) this type of "story" will be played out too many times for the general public to really care.



On a similar note --- --- to the moron that was riding on his gas tank and cut me off today while I was driving the truck home. My 7 year old son has better control and intelligence on his bike! I'm thinking that it was too bad that there wasn't any police around to give him a little "chase"!!!!!!

Belinda and I were leaving Children's Hospital when this all went down they had traffic detoured off I-75 onto I-94, the bike lost control trying to exit I-94 onto Northbound I-75 went airborne and hit the divider wall between north and southbound I-75 traffic. It was a very ugly scene and there wasn't much left of the bike...

RIP to the rider and his/her family, regardless of the situation

I think there are so many of these because of all the stories of "how I got away". To Bad the ones that didnt get away cant tell there story.

Man, Just face up and take the ticket! You never know he might let you go. If not at least you will see friends and family again.
