Had a play I believe; first time I went across that bridge the curve at the end comes out of no where and I found myself leaning much harder than I was expecting.

It's just a HPD press release, not the full report

RIP and condolences to his family

I could have easily died in my crash. The first thing I thought, "this isn't so bad". Second thing, "awe , my bike's gonna be up". Third thing as my body impacted the first ditch, "OUCH!". Fourth thing as my body impacted the second ditch, "OUCH, make it stop!".

You don't really have much time to do a lot of thinking it happens so fast.

Same thing when I got pushed off the road in my mustang... Into a power poll.

"What's this doing. turning right in front of me. Juke right. Starting to recover. Awe , out of road. there's a ditch. Is that a manhole cover. Awe poll. Airbag. Is the car on fire? Nope, just airbag smoke. I'm just going to sit here a moment."
