Mr DeMicoli please, I am not blaming anybody, I'm just pointing out that most of the accidents happen because the drivers looses control over their machines because of their speed, and that is why I am saying to Slow Down and stop showing off with their machines.

Dear F., right away you are blaming the biker. Were you witness to this accident? Maybe the Yaris or the biker was avoiding a pot hole and in so doing ended up driving in the wrong lane. Maybe one of them was making a left turn. Who knows what led to this accident. To all drivers where you live, watch out for motorcycles. Do not make any generalizations, F. Here's hoping for a speedy and complete recovery to both persons involved in this accident.
