The driver of the car said the motorcycle was speeding.
Currently BSO is still investigating.
This type of intersectional collision is very common in motorcycle death cases. Typically the driver of the car is heading in the opposite direction of the motorcycle. The driver doesn’t see the motorcycle as it approaches and the driver makes a left turn directly in front of the bike. Occasionally, there may be a car driving in front of the motorcycle which obscures the view for motorists driving in the opposite direction.
With this type of impact the biker could be seriously injured or killed.
