Rider down somewhere near 288 & 59 around midnight

I understand there was a pretty bad wreck around midnight near 288 & 59. Was told it looked like a blue and white gsxr, bike looked pretty bad and the hwy was closed in that area, not good. Hopeful that the rider made it although with the hwy being shut down not a very good sign.

Everyone be careful out there and know where that line in the sand is and try not to cross it when riding on the streets!

how so? I usually ride late at night to the gym and the highways have few vehicles. I make sure to wear my high viz reflective vest over my jacket. I've also put some reflective tape on my bike and helmet.

hes probably referring to the amount of people who are under the influence tend to be out later in the night.

Statistically speaking, more accidents happen at night. I'll have to look up the stat, but don't quote me on that.

Poor visibility, impaired drivers seem to be a few reasons that come to mind.

I was working nights for a while and driving home on around 2am-3am. Friday nights were especially bad. Won't forget the dude in an Accord that was flying up the Chimney Rock exit ramp doing 70+ going the wrong way on 59S. I didn't see him hit anyone before his taillights went down past the overpass in my rearview. The bad drivers get even worse after midnight.
