Somebody needs to do something about the bicycle riders! they have no respect for anyone else except themselves, they think they control the road!!When they start paying for License plates & Insurance like we as motorist have to have they should at leasat GET OUT OF THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD!!

Whether it is a good idea or not, state law says they have every right to ride in the travel lane of a highway. Not saying they should, just what the law says.

Keep your negative comments to yourself people. This 18 year old Boy could die. He is in a coma and bleeding from his brain! Prayers for Keith and his family!

People like you always assume that someone who rides a bike doesn't pay taxes somehow. I own a car and a bicycle and I pay taxes and am insured. I use my bike to save gas and money to get back and forth to work 9 months out of the year. Tell me how that is any different than someone driving two cars or a car and a motorcycle. And the state law says I have every right to be on the road. Being pretty selfish if you can't share the 1"x50" space that my bike takes up on the road. Maybe you should kick the Harleys off the road too.

While people sit and argue about whether this young man had reflectors on his bike or whether he actually has a right to be on the road he is fighting for his life. I hope he succeeds.

If he didn't have the proper equipment, he deserves what he gets, just like an auto driver, on the road at night without lights.....

All of you seem to be blaming the bike rider for this accident but I read that the car crossed the middle of the road on a double yellow line. Seems to me that is a violation of the law. Yes they both have faults but if there is blame it should go to the driver of the car for driving on the wrong side of the road not the cyclist who was on his side of the road.

Thankfully I survived the stupid stuff I did in my teens. And some of the dumb stuff I sometimes do now.:( Sorry to see all the negativity here. So easy to sit behind one's computer persona and place blame and coulda-woulda-shoulda. To say someone deserves to be in a coma with a brain injury is just inhuman, inhumane, and basically evil. Guess I'm not perfect like some here.

Good luck & many prayers, Keith. And prayers for Mr. Sandoe.

Like you can actually see the line on that road, let alone a bicyclist in dark clothing and no lights or reflectors........

I have been in that situation, and the guy on the bike was at fault, so it is his fault he is dead.....
Sucks to be him.....

Did any of you ever think as to why he was out riding his bike in the dark? He may have made a mistake riding in the dark with no lights, reflectors and in dark clothing, but he was doing a good deed and trying to get back home safely! Maybe you all should think before you speak and find out all the facts that aren't ever printed! He didn't deserve this and is fighting for his life. He should be graduating high school in less than 2 weeks. Think of the families instead of your selves and all your bitterness. If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't comment!
Wishing you a full recovery and praying for you and your family Keith!

"Sandoe told police that he was talking to a 17-year-old passenger in his car when he looked up, saw Strine and had no time to react, police said. Sandoe and the passenger were both wearing seatbelts and were not injured, police added."

"When he looked up" should mean something to anything less than a trivial dolt. A quasar strapped to your front and back will not make you more visible to a person who is NOT LOOKING. Have an adult read and help you comprehend the story, bitter imbecile.

Insurance is for liability against damage to others, please show objective proof that OTHERS are getting harmed by bikes! This article clearly and objectively states "Sandoe and the passenger were both wearing seatbelts and were not injured". I can't believe how many people want to inflate government and have HUGE overreach in EVERY part of our lives...ooohhhh lets make children insure their tricycles and get a license for their skateboard, the John Deere lawn tractor, the pet bunny and for granny's walker too, don't forget shopping carts at Wal Mart!!!! I HATE GOVERNMENT OVERREACH, stop begging and preaching for MORE super-massive government you stupid government-LOVING idiots! Go to France if you want a nanny-state!

Prayers to the cyclist and his family, no accident should ever be a "call for death" like we see from PATHETIC people on this forum as-in Bitter Idiot.
