It tugs at my heart to hear the news of the people that passed. Especially the man that lost his wife and son. I couldn't imagine being in the hospital without having my wife by my side. It just makes me love her even more. RIP to the many fallen.

+1. And think of the riders family. Like Scooter said, I hope the father has in his life as well as the surviving children but no matter what words are spoken it seems like its never enough. :/:
Rip to Dustin, Guadalupe, and Alex.

that stretch of road is 2 lane and dark. cagers not paying attention. sad to think that everyone else payed for the drivers mistake, but the driver gets to ponder it for the rest of his life.

NO OFFENSE, but im pretty sure it wasnt the driver's mistake. Its a LONG stretch, as you know. And dustin was wild. Judging by the condition of the car today (my dad went and looked at it w/ his uncle), and the fact that the impact killed two people in the cage, He was hauling a$$ and the driver couldnt tell how fast it he was coming. T-BONE.

quite possible since you are familiar with the rider...hard to say though without more info being released. that stretch of road is 55mph... even if he was going 65-70 like most people do out there a bike would still do loads of damage to a small SUV.

Let jsut keep in mind, we don't know anything near enough about the accident to pass judgement on this on... so blaming the rider or 'the cager' does no good.

Well all ride, almost everyone in the thread drives/'cages' at some point. Forget the stupid cager/rider thing, and just keep in mind there was a bad accident in which 3 people lost their lives.

yup. I remember me and the witchdoctor had a friendly debate after a wreck here in CS. SV t-boned an SUV. The SV's impact knock the SUV on its side. Lots of force anywhere from 40mph - 70 mph.

i kinda knew the kid that was on the gsxr......................too big of a bike for too small of a kid!!! it was a 1000 from what ive heard and he thought he was a bad for having it but he already dropped it once just standing still because his feet barely touched the ground........ we all told him he was stupid for getting something so big...... never thought this would happen though. R.I.P. to the three and my prayers go out to both families. :(

It gives me chills sometimes thinking how sometimes simple mistakes can cause such horror, and so suddenly. Probably, the Jeep driver will feel at fault, even if this had to do with excessive speed of the cyclist. I hope he will be able to deal with his grief somehow. Seems like it probably wasn't really his fault.
