Waiting to file charges?

WTF? How about vehicular manslaughter at a minimum? Whether he was drunk or not, he was driving the wrong way on an interstate.

Lock him up.

how do you turn onto i95 the wrong way? This was either intentional or stupidity at its best.

How about attempted suicide? We should assist him in being successful at it. Give him "the chair".

The issue is not about motorcycles, it's why that person was driving the WRONG way on I95. No matter what kind of motorized vehicle any kind of head on collision at high speeds can result in fatalities. Once again, why was that person going the wrong way on a major highway????

I absolutely agree with you; they should lock him up.

Now I have a question; how will they differentiate this "mistake" from just, let's say, "cutting the motercycle off"? Is the defense attorney going to say, "what makes this mistake different?" Ask the jurors where they would draw the line between a little mistake and a big mistake. Think about it; these lawyers can really twist things.

He was probably drunk; if that's the case, it's a slam dunk, but if there's a remote chance that he was sobor, that's when this question comes into play.

You obviously do not have a clue about the procedures to follow when filing cases and presenting evidence

This is awful, as usual. I rode a motorcycle for fourteen years as my primary transportation and rode on I95 countless times, in rush hour traffic. I consider it a miracle that I wasn't killed a thousand times. That being said, I would suggest that a motorcycle rider should curtail their riding in the very early morning hours to help avoid the most common time of encounters with drunk drivers. I very seldom rode after dark and that is most likely why I survived the 14 year experience. Thanks.

It is so very sad when this horrendous accident takes young vibrant peoples lives. Motorcycling is so enjoyable and teaches us to be attentive and careful. If this person was drunk or on drugs his life is over too. It shows we all have to care about ourselves so we do not hurt others. drink at home or dont drive.

Blame it on drugs and/or alcohol. Hopefully, the cops won't mess up the investigation, thus allowing the wrong-way killer to get off on a stupid technicality and serving only 87 minutes in jail. In any event, this wrong-way killer will be driving again; that's the way Florida lawmakers "make the law"---I say if he's not locked up for life, he should not be permitted a Florida (and all other states informed of the charges) driver's licence EVER!---take the bus!

Yes, its time to wear helmets......That is, wearing helmets when you are driving your car, like those nascar guys. The roadways here are getting ridiculous dangerous that I think Gov. Crist should sign a bill and make it mandatory to wear helmets when driving your car. It can save lives.

FL legislature assumes part of the blame for making it possible for people with numerous license suspensions to drive, WITH a license. In a more civilized state, these licenses would be burned; but down here in the Third World County, anything goes. We pay for it in lives and dollars.

May the two young people RIP.
May justice prevail.

I used to ride a bike when I was younger. 25+ years ago.
I stopped. Too many cars, too many reckless drivers. The roads are designed unsafely in many places.

I'll get pummeled for this but we need helmet laws. it might not have made a difference in this case but we need them.
The roads are just too dangerous and the speeds are just too fast.
JMHO.

Anyway, once again, RIP.

Stay at home and don't drive anything. Live your life in a rubber room. I'm not going to wear a helmet while driving a car. People need to get safer driving skills, not having to turn your vehicle into safety mobile. Driving school refresher classes should be a requirement before renewing your license.
