    the young man killed in the motorcycle crash… identify him but not the the people in the SUV who appear to have been in the wrong. They turned into him when it appears, as witnesses say, the motorcyclist had the right of way. So, why do you do you not identify the driver who killed him? The article reads like the motorcyclist, Mcpherson, was in error – but he was not. So, why don’t you identify the occupants of the car that were in the wrong – who turned right in front of the young man without looking?

    Scotty, you will be forever missed!

    Why is it 99.9% of the time the person in the wrong that walks away from these without so much as a scratch?
