Some of us do take precautions. The problem with collisions like these is that oncoming traffic, for the most part, approaches in a straight line. In that situation, it is very difficult (almost impossible) to know oncoming speed unless your last name is Doppler. The truck driver has no idea whether or not the oncoming bike is going 35 or 90. Iíve personally witnessed that to an extreme. Most recently at the Jones Beach airshow where an F/A-18 came from the west, accelerating towards the east. It was going fast and appeared like it was going about 200mph. Surprise!!! It was accelerating and broke the sound barrier (700+mph with sonic boom) right in front of our faces. My point being that if something looks far enough away where it appears we can make a turn safely, we will.
My comments are not stupid and they come from experience, but think what you want. Even if my comments are stupid, itís better to make stupid comments than to perform stupid actions.
you stupid ass the truck actually went straight from a left turn lane. this was solely his falt
no matter what it wont bring craig back he is gone now go pick on some one else.

So the turning truck went straight and was supposed to turn right? A right onto Grucci Lane? I guess itís a real accomplishment to T-bone a tractor-trailer if it was going straight.
You should really try putting down the crack pipe, turning off your caps lock and writing like an adult.
Guess you missed the part that stated ďThe truck driven by Allen Flore, 43, of Shirley, was turning left onto Grucci Lane when the crash occurredĒ.
also it states craig was heading east and he was going west bound the intersection where he was you need to make a left and then at the stop sign there is a left hand turning lane only the truck driver went straight.therefore he was wrong. maybe you should get off you ass and take a ride out here to see for yourself.then maybe you will understand the situtation better.

<quoted text>Sorry a 23 yo has not been a boy for some time and identifying him as one does him no favor. Maybe identifying him as only a boy allows him some slack in your mind. According to the news story Craig, the boy, slammed into a tractor trailer as it was making a turn. Unless this information is incorrect the boy seems to be culpable for the consequences of this accident. His lack of drivings skills or recklessness has caused his family and friends grief. Please don't let him be remembered as a yo boy in order to sooth you psyche.
apparently you do not have children because you did you would know that no matter how old they they are they are still your kids.just ask your mom and dad

you are amazing if you actually read what was being said they were both going different directions and that spot is basically a damn u turn not a straight away,i was at the site with a few others yesterday and with in a ten min time frame there were 6 trucks and 2 suvs that went straight when there are obvious signs to make a left turn..yes we did get the plate numbers of all the drivers and have video footage of this all...nonetheless the road they are illegally going on to is a right turn in and a right turn out ...and there were even a few asses that went straight going off that road as well into on comming traffic so its a major problem over there ..and we witnessed many many close calls so to say....and with obvious signs there and left turn arrows (not left,straight) two drivers actually said they didnt see the signs .come on get real....

but you seem to be so into this ...ive been wondering if your a truck driver too that disobeys the law as well..but as Familymember said if you cant seem to understand it go down to sight and you will see what is being spoken of..........and the truck driver who told police he was making a left, had left skid marks going straight and even the prson driving behind Craig had to lock up his breaks and came inces to hitting the truck as well !!!!!!!!!!

you seem to be the psychic so are you seeing clearly now .....
