Five motorcyclists taken to hospital after crash on EB I-10 at Bingle

hope they are all ok

Quote:
Five people were transported to the hospital after several motorcycles were involved in a crash on Interstate 10 at Bingle Road Saturday.

According to the Toll Road Authority, just before noon a group of motorcyclists were driving on the eastbound managed lanes when a tire hit one of the motorcycles. The motorcycle fell and hit several other motorcycles, causing a chain reaction.*

The Toll Road Authority said five people were transported to the hospital. There were some internal injuries and one person had a broken leg.*

Authorities believe the tire may be an extra that fell off of a passing vehicle.*

These guys were at a funeral. From what I understand, over all, all are ok. One or two went to the hospital. Only one bike was unridable. What wasn't fully understood was if the vehicle that was carrying the tire was going the same way or opposite direction. If the same way, you'd think they were playing catch up and it'd be harder for it to have surprised them, vs on the other side where it hoped the railing and basically played "pinball" with a couple of riders who were then hit by other riders. I do believe two got ran over, but only one went to the hospital. And if this is the same group, they weren't riding staggered, but rather bar to bar. I was suppose to be there but got called in to work.

Actually, I feel MUCH better riding bar to bar with people I'm use to riding with. What I find while riding in a group bar to bar is cars seem to take more notice and cut in the middle of the formation a lot less. It's not like their bars are touching. Just side by side in far sides of the lane. A lot less of "I didn't see him when I made my illegal U-Turn" statements. So I hear not as safe, but it mostly sounds like speculation. My experience has been it makes more of a presence which in itself makes it safer.

When you ride bar to bar, you have no escape when there is an emergency. You may "feel" safe,but reality is, you're taking away the space that is needed to avoid an emergency that a staggered formation creates.

Well again that your thoughts. But it's one of those things I really am not going to debate on how you feel vs how I feel. Usually in a pack like that I've had less reason to need to "escape" but always still keep a window. More eyes looking at situations ahead that I may not see from my angle they see from their angle. etc.. This can be debated all day like helmets and oil. So you ride your and I ride mine. Been riding solo, staggered and bar to bar for many many years. But what works for you works for you. Problem with staggered is must are right there in your blind spot so if you try to 'escape' through their path, then there may be two down instead of just one. So really all this "I am biker guru" bs don't really mean jack because what we do is dangerous period. The only way it's "safer" is if you stay in your comfort zone. Not mine. (i.e. ride your ride)...

Really wasn't trying to turn this in to a debate of all the 'professionals' other really than to talk about what the op was about. The wreck. It wasn't caused by riding bar to bar, but rather by something that flew off a truck. And before the "what if game" the tire made it's way down the line, so regardless of the formation, it'd hit more than the front rider.

The reason people got run over was because of the formation. You don't have any stopping distance and if you're on the inside, no way to steer away from the threat. Riding bar to bar in a big group is pretty dumb.

Ya, if you ride bar to bar, one tire takes out 5. Logic says always ride like you are not in a group. If cars cut through, cool. Holding a bar to bar or staggered formation to keep cars out reminds be of the blue eagles. America, ya! Looks cool, pound chest. But I don't think have a lock on safety either.

It's not about macho, chest pounding. But ok. Yea..... Bring me some stats/facts. Then I'll listen. Of course there's always trolls that want to go a different direction. But let's make the thread all about how another person rides and where that's my concern. Again, show me where more people, especially ones that ride often together, get in to worse accidents than solo riders, riders that stagger, or groups that randomly just whip in and out of traffic using all lanes with multiple bikes. Then you'll have a point that's made. Even for the guys that I've known that have gone down that usually ride bar to bar went down by themselves or were the only ones that went down in the group. (and off hand can only think of only two that went down while riding bar to bar) But daily I see solo riders and other formations getting life flight several times a week. Shall we start keeping count?
