Healing prayers....always watch closing distance and velocity. It seems traffic in Sugar Land has been particularly erratic lately with an abundance of fast and agressive cagers.

Investigators say a man on a motorcycle was speeding along Richmond near Loretto when he crashed into the back of a car.

I hate when the press does stuff like this. He could have been actually going the speed limit or even under it. Why do they try to place some kind of blame on a guy because he was riding a bike. Just adding insult and more negative connotations. As a simple manner of describing motorcycles, bikes always "speed" along a road. A few months ago a guy in our area was injured pretty badly to his chest and arms. The press reported that "a motorcyclist was injured in a wreck. He was not wearing a helmet." I wrote a letter to the reporter that posted the article and asked why she even mentioned the helmet and then didn't mention the nature of the injuries. Of course, no reply.

I don't know the details here, but just that short paragraph left a bad taste.

Prayers. Lots of prayers.

Almost every accident story is based on eyewitness or police statements. What would you have them write? I also replied to your post about emailing a reporter and told you that the guy is a stringer and not a reporter.

More on the same story

A MOTORCYCLIST WHO WAS SPEEDING DOWN RICHMOND IS STILL ALIVE AFTER A CRASH.
THE MOTORCYCLIST MAY HAVE BEEN TRAVELING AS FAST AT 100 MILES AN HOUR BEFORE SLAMMING INTO A CAR NEAR LORETTO AROUND 11 LAST NIGHT.
THE CAR CHANGED LANES IN FRONT OF THE MOTORCYCLE AND THE MOTORCYCLIST WAS UNABLE TO STOP. HE CRASHED INTO THE CAR AND WAS TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL IN CRITICAL CONDITION. THE DRIVER SAYS SHE LOOKED BEFORE CHANGING LANES BUT DIDN'T SEE THE MOTORCYCLE.

Like Bevo said, you can't really blame the press for this statement. They just reported what they were told by the police.

You could blame the police for reporting that the biker was speeding - but if he was really doing 100 on Richmond then it looks like they may have actually been a little conservative with their adverb.
