It was definitely the SUV's fault. The SUV was parked and didn't see the riders as the driver attempted to make a U turn. When the rider saw the SUV it was too late and he had to lay the bike down. Nona (The Motorcycle passenger) was pretty bummed she could not see the view from the Helicopter.

Apologies to all, if you see in the upper right corner, where it says published and updated, the original news story had the motorcyclist clearly at fault, then in typical news four fashion, they find out what really happened then updated the story with the SUV clearly at fault.

Renojim FYI what actually happened is SUV left side of road and attempted to make a u-turn to go back in opposite direction and apparently never seen the motorcycle approaching. That is when motorcycle hit SUV!

Tikidianne read the article, the police stated the motorcycle collided with the SUV. This poor motorcycle rider theme gets old.

Proceed on red doesn't start until next week. Guess they didn't get the memo.

I am getting tired of reading reports of the motorcycle colliding with a vehicle and at first glance appears the motorcycle was at fault, when in fact 99% of the time the VEHICLE collided with the motorcycle, as in pulling in its path, rear-ending the motorcycle, etc. Really needs to emphasize the vehicle being the cause of the accident. Hope these folks will be OK!!
