Motorcyclist dead after falling 100 feet from Tampa overpass

Rider did not look like he had enough experience riding bikes as you can see on the video, he rear-ended the other bike
How sad... R.I.P.

That's a crazy way to go, definitely one of my fears while driving going over the barricade

Sad way to go, I can only imagine what it felt

How is that considered a hit and run? I looks like he got spooked when he almost hit the other bike. Sucks

Because the rider he hit left the scene and his passenger.

How did that even happen? They weren't going all that fast.

And why did the guy leave? Ummmm he left the passenger, did he think she would keep her mouth shut?
