The Escape was hit in the side, not sure how that equals the car hitting the motorcycle. Inaccurate reporting affects people too.

The way this is presented says that the woman hit the motorcycle, but if there's damage to the side of Escape, that means he hit her. I hope he's alright, but this could have been avoided. I hope Channel 8 will correct the accusation against the woman and correct the statement. Prayers for the family are here too.

Just because there was damage to the Escape how does that make it his fault? Could the driver of the Escape made a mistake resulting in the motorcyle driver hitting her?
