Actually, I think it's more like the shoe is on the other foot. SUV is at fault. So I'm waiting for the barrage against SUV's from the sport bikers.

I don't care WHO was at fault, if you're involved in an accident like this, you STOP. If the driver leaves the scene, I say charge him/her to the maximum and take away their license.

Agreed. I think you'd be hard pressed to find anyone to argue with on that unless they were just trying to get a rise. Pretty obvious.

I wasn't commenting on what anyone here has said, I was just making a comment; yes it IS pretty obvious, but apparently not to a lot of people, as we hear of so many people involved in accidents leaving the scene. What I meant was, I didn't care which party was at fault in an accident, if they leave the scene, charge 'em.

Sorry, I thought you were referring to the knock down drag out on this message board the other day between the sport bikers and non sport bikers. But if you were talking about the hit and runs, like I said, no one will argue that anyone should leave the scene. Obviously anyone who would leave has a critical lack of humanity.

Seems this would clear up the earlier debate regarding motorcycles. Here we have an SUV (far more dangerous and obtrusive) cutting off a motorcycle causing an accident and the running. Hopefully everyone now understands it's the driver not the mode of transportation.

It's really not about what kind of vehicle anyone is in when someone runs a red light and turns into oncoming traffic. The rate of speed most travel at on 210, its not likely that anyone could have gotten out of the way in time. As far as the person fleeing the scene, well, It was a mercedes SUV, probably stolen or a dealer possibly. I think the person who fled obviously had something more to hide then just running a red light and accident that probably killed someone. It was a nasty mess, I was there shortly after it happened and there was plenty of people standing around so where are the good people to stop the person from running??

Maybe Delegate Bronrott will say that SUV's should be banned now?

This is the most common form of accidents that involve bikes and my biggist fear as a rider.

I have had people pull out, or almost pull out in front of me all the time, and not just at traffic lignts. The thing that saved me most of the time is riding slow and using my horn when I see someone about to pull out. I use my horn a LOT!

I ride a BIG bike, with 3 lights burning, so it's not like they can't see me.

Just last week, some guy just coming off the parkway ramp, looked to the left right at me, then looked to the right and started rolling forward. BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP. He jerked to a stop and looked at me like I was crazy.

For this reason, I NEVER speed up to try to make the yellow light and I am extra cautious going throw ANY light if there are cars in the left turn lane that obstruct the view.

Of course, when you ride slow and stop for yellow lights, you also run the risk of being rear ended which is my 2nd biggist fear.

I absolutely HATE it when one of those ignorant SUV drivers will tailgate me on a 2 lane road. Especially at night. If a deer runs out in front of me, I know he/she is going to kill me, but they don't care. If I can, I will always pull over and let them pass, but you can't do that at when you can't tell how low the shoulder is or what kind of condition its in. Sometimes I wish I could drop a land mine in front of them.

The article doesn't say anything about the condition of the rider....I pray the he or she is alive and will be ok.

I think yes you should never leave at accident if you hit somebody you need to stay there for someone to help you out.

I witnessed the accident and was one of the first people to reach the motorcyclist. I do not know of his ultimate fate, but it did not look good. He had a major throat injury and was going into shock. I left the scene after the fire dept. and a second ambulance showed up. Please keep the rider and his family in your prayers.

To the people reading this, examine your personal relationship with The Lord Jesus Christ and accept him as your Lord and savior. You just do not know when it is your time to go. Tommorrow could be too late. This morning really brought that home for me.

Jonny500,

Thanks for the info.

I know just what you mean. I was the first one on the scene of a late night single car accident where an 18 year old lost his life and it forever changed me. Till this day, I can still remember the smell of the gasoline,antifreeze, burned rubber, blood and alcohol.

It was horrible to be there and not be able to do anything. He was still alive, but the car was all crushed around him and the doors would not open so I could only reach him through the small opening that used to be the window.

I was there until the rescue squad showed up and I went with them to the hospital. After about an hour the came out and said he had died. Of course by then, his parents were there and I had to witness their breakdown. It was one of the saddest days of my life.

Even now, it makes me cry just thinking about it.

God bless you for stopping.

Lemme guess, the police gonna blame this one on the bike as well? All these bike incidents and none recently have been the bikes fault. So is MD gonna still try and ban sport bikes from the highway too? Then they need to consider volvos, hondas, and now SUV's too.

I don't believe anyone is going to blame the biker for this.

I doubt that anyone is going to be banning sport bikes either. How would they manage that? Call up all the 1000's of registered owners and say "well, sorry, but you have to send your tags back?" How would they deal with the 1000's of bikes that are legally registered in other states that cross the border?

Anytime anything tragic happens, there is always going to be a flock of narrow minded people screaming ban this and outlaw that. It ain't ever going to happen.
