I was driving West on Macland at 6:15. I saw the "crotch rockets" make a U turn at Bankstone and absolutey fly back east down Macland. I have been traveling Macland for 20 yrs, they were not just speeding, they were going 2X the speedlimit..DURING RUSH HOUR...HOW DARE THEY RISK SOMEBODY ELSES LIFE....If they wanted to be stupid idiots they should have gone out to Polk County.

Thanks so much girl for coming on here and setting some of these a** holes straight. I just cant belive that there are people out here like that. They could never feel our pain and understand what were going through right now. They didnt know Nique and could never judge him. I loved him like a brother and will always have his back. Thanks girl.
all you can think about is the woman who caused the accident. Lady, if one of you children was killed like Dominique or fighting for their life like Bron, well would you mind if the police let the driver off? Yeah, I didnt think so....! Damn where is your head at...get it out of your ass lady!!!!!!!!!!

My husband is a police officer and a motorcyclists. He spent hard earned money on the bike and like many others is not reckless. (In law inforcement you can't aford to) I am sorry for the accident but why is everything about how bad the byker was. Have you watched people who drive cars.

Thanks for yet ANOTHER eyewitness response! It's sad that there's a certain species of biker completely unable to accept the truth that some riders do idiotic things and get THEMSELVES killed!

Listen, my brother rides a bike, he used to do the local drag circuit in his "Yama-dowg" when he was younger. He's been the victim of a careless driver (Cruising down Fulton Industrial some nitwit on her cellphone decided to change lanes right into him. With almost no time to react all he could do was go into the median where he took a tumble. The story in this case can be told funny, his last thoughts would be some ditzy chick blabbing away on her phone as she ran him off the road. She didn't even realize it). The point being, I KNOW their are plenty of bad box drivers!

From all accounts a bad driver isn't the case HERE! Two motorcyclists were behaving like idiots! They could have easily killed someone other than themseves. It's too late for at least one of them, I'm sure he would own up to it and want others to LEARN from it.

Is there a memorial fund or a place we can send flowers to Dominique, or something for his daughter/family? This is the worst news I have heard in a long time- although I haven't seen Dominique in years, I went to high school and middle school with him, and he was simply a wonderful person- beautiful inside and out.

For those of you out there who are trying to blame this accident on the victims, please be aware that a LIFE WAS LOST, and a family is grieving- have a little respect. First of all, none of the people calling the motorcyclists "idiots" actually SAW what happened. You are jumping to conclusions and making assumptions. Secondly,if you want to have this tacky debate, take it somewhere else, where the victim's friends and family will not see it. To many of you this may just be another accident, but a lot of people just lost someone very, very special.

GET OUT!!! lol What sort of nitwitted statement is that? In case you haven't grasped the notion of a news forum let me fill you in. Articles are written and the public is given an opportunity to respond! You may not like it but that's the concept. This isn't a family/friends "grieving" space, it's a place where ideas and OPINIONS about a story are expressed!! Also, if a person could only comment on a story that he/she were an "eyewitness" too when in God's name could anyone ever comment??!

Come on Jane, give me a break. Call me tacky (heck, call me evil) if I felt compelled to write my opinion on some "Memorial" or "Friends of the Deceaced" oriented website. This IS NOT that place! I believe the reports from eyewitnesses and I think the two cyclests were behaving like IDIOTS!

For the record. If the two were a couple of teens I might feel a good bit more sympathy for them. It's hard to muster a whole heck of a lot of sadness for men in their thirties putting others at risk by blistering up and down Macland Road! Of course I'm affected by that sort of stuff, juding by your cyber location your quite a few states away?

Years ago I lived in a subdivision where idiots would do exactly what these guys were doing and I prayed for the day something like this would happen since the police would never really do anything but scold them. We had to listen to the noise on and off for hours. I wonder if these two yo-yo brains are the same two idiots from years ago. Regardless, their neighbors have received an early xmas gift and can now count on a "Silent Night".

"You heartless son of a b!+ch"!!!!It's times like this that I would love to go all Matrix on your a$z, come through the computer and beat the living sh!t out of you! I would love to give you an eternal "silent night" !!!!(but i'll not stoop to your level, only because you get murder charges for that sort of thing) I hope you die a slow and extremely painful death and then rot in hell! You have no heart.
A young man( that i grew up with) "LOST HIS LIFE" and you have the nerve to say something as cruel as that!

Dominique, you will be forever missed! I love you and I'll be praying for your family... sincerely Justin Dobson a.k.a. "CHUCKY" a.k.a. "DOBSON"

Goodness gracious!!! I agree that the post you were responding to was mean spirited and callous but come on "CHUCKY", your violent and threatening response blew him away! Your frightening man, really, it sounds like you need some serious counseling.

Once again, this is a public forum. There are ways and places available where those close to the deceased can honor his life. Of course you can do that here too if you choose. You just have to understand that this isn't a memorial or obituary, it's a local news forum and folks are encouraged to chime in with their opinions.

ATTENTION to all readers, I want to clarify some misunderstandings in these comments.I live in Macland Park and I have witnessed this tragic accident when I was getting my groceries from my car.
From what I have seen, there was a group of motorcyclists exiting Macland Park and when it appears that all of them have left the neighborhood, the driver of the SUV made a left turn. As soon as she entered the neighborhood, two motorcyclists came right in front of her in full speed and crashed into her car. So, it is not her fault at all because they were driving very fast. Also, I saw them driving on the left lane because there was a car blocking the right lane.
For those who have said that the photos reveal great damage of the car and believe for that reason it implies that the car did run over the bikers is highly STUPID. The damage is terrible because the motorcyclists were driving too fast on their way out of the neighborhood and they were on the wrong lane. The News media needs to rephrase this sentence, "The driver of the car made a left turn in front of the motorcycles" because it's causing everyone to believe that the car just turned right in front of these guys and BAM. This accident happened fast, she sees no one else leaving the neighborhood, turns and coming out of nowhere with full speed the motorcyclists hit her.
I pray for the guy in critical condition and those who are grieving.
