Those idiots (posters) meant "crotch rocket". They're confusing that term with "pocket bike"

Are you sure you're not confusing eyewitness interviews that are aired with anchor commentary? Pulling like that will get you in the news director's office, pronto. I've never heard local anchors ever give off the cuff remarks about a serious traffic accident.
