By saying 3 ton death machine, you are blaming the SUB drivers. I think we should wait and see what they find out in the investigation. You might be surprised who the idiots are.

Toyota RAV4 weight Specs

Curb weight (lb.) 3360lbs (1.68 Tons)

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)(lbs.)/with third-row seats 4430/4730 lbs (2.215 / 2.36 tons)

Curb weight not even close to 6,000 lbs; but Keith Crocco is still dead and he left children and presumably a wife behind. My take: There is no meeting or appointment so important that traveling at 80-100 mph (or more) on a motorcycle at night is worth risking your life over. How saddening.

Finally, someone with some consideration. I assume family members are reading these comments and 99% of them are not heart warming.

I don't know what people are doing commenting on the death of my close friend. I had seen Keith only a week or so before this happened, when he heckled me from the gas station across the street as I was coming out of Finch's. We talked for at least half an hour just standing there, and now he is gone. I am still in shock. There are so many stories from times the two of us spent together in the 80s. In the last several years, we would just give each other that look and a sometimes-embarassed smile (we were young and crazy!) of things that only WE knew. Now I have to carry those memories by myself. And all of you are commenting on a person, a life, and an accident that you know absolutely nothing about. For all you know, this idiot in the SUV could have braked suddenly for no reason. Or switched lanes without using their turn signal while chatting or texting on their cell phone. We will never know whose fault it truly was. We weren't there. And Keith is not here to tell what his side of what happened. But the only thing that matters is that he is gone, and I will miss him, his directness and killer sense of humor for the rest of my life.

A motorcycle do not hit a car if it is in front of the car. How could they protect the bike when the bike hit them from the back.
