  • This is terrible and I hate to be ‘that guy’, but I was listening to the scanner traffic while this was happening and they said repeatedly mile marker 95.

  • Sorry to hear the motorcycle driver has died. Prayers to his family.

  • This is sad and tragic. What is with that stretch of road lately? Too many accidents.

    • That stretch of road is sought after nation wide for its Motercycleing ! It’s the banked corners,smooth surface and yes….danger that draws every mark of moterists there. Not only that….it’s buetiful , but needs lots of respect!

  • My condolences to friends and loved ones. Drive a car. Ride a bike. Rider!
