Moto Road Rage DOA Houston

http://abc13.com/traffic/possible-ro...eadly/1523461/

Early this morning, police say the male driver of a motorcycle and a female driver in an SUV were involved in a potential road rage incident on the Katy Freeway hat ended with the motorcyclist's death.

Police say both drivers were on the feeder road inbound at I-10 and Greenhouse around 5:30am, when the SUV driver tried to switch lanes and almost hit the motorcycle driver.

Police say the motorcycle driver actually pushed her side mirror in to get her attention. Soon after, police say, the situation got out of control, and the SUV hit the motorcyclist, and the victim hit a hydrant. He died at the scene.

Police say the SUV driver stopped at the scene and was questioned all morning. At this time, police say no charges will be filed, but that could change.

You have no idea what happened. "The situation got out of control". For all we know that means the driver got spooked and did something unpredictable that led to an accident.

What's the moral of the story? It doesn't matter if the motorcyclist is "right". If a rider and a driver get into an accident, the rider loses.

Do you know that the next update might state that he hit the back of the SUV when it changed lanes?

RIP to the rider. Sucks it had to happen... I know that early in the AM it is still dark out and she could have possibly not seen him. Either way, sad for both involved.

When I ride (hardly ever) I tend to enjoy myself to the point of not wanting to get upset about others idiotic moves. It's like frogger out there just get where you are going and twist the throttle if needed this machismo bullshit I just want to get home in one piece and have a good time doing it.

It's old enough that I just assumed everyone would've recognized my response to be a joke. Guess not.

But it is both really funny and really sad that people would actually assume that it was legitimately true despite the overwhelming preponderance of evidence that suggests otherwise

Not everyone lives on the Internet. However I find it classless to post such garbage at the expense of a fallen rider. Nor do I take enjoyment from others misfortunes. What a POS.

The guy is dead, I don't think he cares much. We're not even aware of whether or not he was indeed misfortunate or whether the consequences he met were a direct result of his intentional actions. As far as the video goes, it says "posted July 1, 2014". If you can't even be assed to read the posting date as even a cursory sanity check, I can't help you. It has nothing to do with having seen it before.
