So very sad and a difficult scene to drive by. Thoughts go out to friends and family of the deceased.

Sadness. Heard Fire in CPR, was hoping for a Miracle. It was not this time. I hope the car driver is cooperating and it’s sadly an accident, only. Cyclists are having many accidents lately. We must be mindful, they have the road too. Cars and Bikes. Lethal when Mixed.

Is this why there was a huge fight nearby where that guy got stabbed? Condolences to the family of the deceased.

The Times is reporting that the motorcyclist was speeding and ran a red light.

11 Linds August 8, 2014 at 7:58 AM

Do we have the name of the rider yet? Very sad

RIP brother rider the good die young so sorry for your family

13 The intersection is not the problem August 8, 2014 at 8:32 AM

it is the reckless and irresponsible people driving on the streets that are a greatest hazard.

Put the blame where it belongs, the people who believe themselves and/or their errands more important than anyone else’s lives.

No traffic management/engineering in the world can keep people from acting stupidly. Traffic engineers should not have to engineer for gross stupidity and narcissism.

I have no sympathy for people who kill themselves by their own selfish interests. I feel badly for parents and loved ones and even more badly for innocent drivers who have to be involved in these things.

There is no excuse for the likes of David Rosen and this guy.

At 13 your a heartless human for posting your comments

15 CheechNchong August 8, 2014 at 9:51 AM

so is running a red light and speeding thru intersection safe bro?

In 43+ years I’ve never had a problem there. Now there are more cars there than ever before, and I’ve been very lucky not to have been in the path of the likes of David Rosen, but I don’t see how it was the fault of the intersection design. Rest in peace, and I’m sorry for everyone involved.

regardless of who was at fault, a person died. someones son brother friend boyfriend died. i knew the man who died and he was a great person. and i think to disrespect someone because of the way they passed is completely rude and out of line. RIP my friend. You will be missed by everyone who loved you !!

I really don’t care what you think. I am heartless as well as angry.

Apparently the motorcyclist broke the law, put innocent people in danger and killed himself.

Sorry he died, feel badly for his parents, loved ones and friends, but apparently he made some bad decisions, he did it to himself, there is no one else or nothing else to blame.

Life is tough, things are hard, man up and accept the facts. Bleeding hearts and those with boundless inane excused achieve nothing.

I have lost a lot of friends and loved one’s, a few by their own mistakes, I know how it feels. But wringing hands and crying and blaming anyone or anything else is simply a waste of time and energy, best left for bleeding hearts and those who refuse to accept certain facts.

Stupidity is something that can be overcome. Death cannot. Death by stupidity CAN be avoided by overcoming the urge to be stupid.

This guy was at fault. No one is saying he deserved to die. All we are saying is that he brought it onto himself. RIP yes, but to the rest of us still alive he is still stupid.

Very sad..
Tribute To A Fallen Brother
By: Bob “Bikerwolf” Bryant

There is a certain pride
To a biker from the South
His soul shines through in his actions
Also the words that come from his mouth

The people that he truly loves
They are often very few
But they all know who they are
They know for them the things he’ll do

He will be there for his children
No matter what the cost
He’ll also be there for his woman
When she needs him most

He’s there for his brothers and his sisters
With a quick joke and a brew
He’s also there when all they need
Is just someone to talk to

There are few men like this
Weather you search far or wide
It is a terrible tragedy
When a Brother like this, takes his final ride

But a man such as this
Even after he is gone
Has not left you alone at all
Cause his spirit will carry on

He’ll be there when you wake up
On a bright sunny, summer day
His memories will always make you smile
When your world has turned to gray

There’s pain in your heart now
cause you’ll never again hear him say
“Come on Cheer the hell up man”

Anyone who bashes the deceased motorcycle driver for running the light or driving recklessly is an idiot. There’s some people out there who love putting other people down, even after they’re dead, go get a life. RIP

22 witness August 8, 2014 at 2:21 PM

I’ll never forget the screams from his friend trying to get him to wake up. regardless of whose fault the accident was someone lost a life. his friends and family will forever have to live with the consequences of his decisions. rest in peace to the man who has reminded me that there is nothing more perminant than death.

reminder to all; we all make mistakes, texting and driving, running red lights, not turning off curling irons or the stove. they are mistakes and luckily many of us are able to live after. some are not, no need to shame the dead

23 Shiloh August 8, 2014 at 2:44 PM

I don’t think it’s about shaming the dead, but about reminding people why it really is stupid to run red lights. And this could have ended differently — it could have ended as a David Rosen situation, where the irresponsible person is alive and an innocent pedestrian is dead. I’m so glad that didn’t happen this time, but IF IT DID, NO ONE would be defending this guy for running a red light. And there was a victim here: the driver of the Sentra.

24 Anon August 8, 2014 at 3:10 PM

Call it a misteak if you want but an intentional act that violates the vehicle code is a sure way to die

25 Silva August 8, 2014 at 4:07 PM

witnes, #22, Sorry, please know that we understand. Do move forward. Do not dwell.
