Accident pics.. do NOT read if sensitive...

I got these pics from another site... brute reality of the Laws of Physics... and there is NO "retrial".

Motorcyclist Killed After High-Speed Crash Overnight Tuesday April 17, 2007 11:07am Posted By: Kevin King

Tulsa - A Broken Arrow man was killed early Tuesday morning after a motorcycle accident on Highway 169 near 81st Street.

Witnesses say the cyclist was going faster than 100 miles per hour when he crashed into the back of a semi truck between 81st and 91st Street at about one o'clock Tuesday morning.

Investigators say evidence shows the cyclist was going about 120 miles per hour at the time of the impact. It took the truck driver more than a quarter of a mile to come to a stop. When he did, he stepped out of his rig and found the motorcyclist dead at the back of the truck.

"The truck driver was not hurt," says Captain Matt Kirkland. "He said that the impact was so strong that he thought he was hit from behind by another truck."

Officers said there was no indication that drugs or alcohol played a factor in the accident.

I may be "glad" they don't.

I can only assume the rider was sleepy!

I saw these just a couple of days ago from another source. There were more photos in the sequence, each one a bit closer than the previous one. At first I thought it was posed, but the final close-up looked pretty conclusive. Yikes.

Oh, it's very real. My brother, based in St. Louis is a Yellow Freight regional maintenance manager. He read the driver report and saw the trailer.

Very pathetic.

Thankfully, sources say, the rider was an ATGATT nut.

Sleepy? I don't think too many as us doze off while doing the "ton". He was way over his head in speed to road conditions.

Yeah - I wrote that before Channing edited with estimated speeds. My new theory - he was very stupid, OR committed suicide ("death by big-rig").

Not that it matters what I think, but to say it nicely - I'ld chalk it up to very poor judgement. Round about the same time, there was another triple digit high speed motorcycle fatality in Tulsa.

I can only guess that after being caged up all winter (we had a lot of ice/snow this year), the riders forgot/lost some of their 'skills' and hadn't reqacquired them yet...

Regardless, what a waste...

Actually they mix very well. As has been proven countless times. Just the outcome is .... shall we say: Less desirable for the individual in the center of that?

One on a country road in the wilds of Lincolnshire, England, a while back - -

Long straight (actually an old roman road) and the biker was really moving - estimated over 140. At the end of the straight was a left hand curve, which at high speed turns into a real bend. Around the bend was a slow moving farm tractor in the middle of the narrow road). Biker went into the left tractor wheel trying to go past the inside. Bike flew 100+ yards down the road, what was left of the rider was stuck between the tractor wheel and mudguard... He wore ATGATT too...

Speed doesn't kill, it's the idiots doing it!

Shawn, from what I understand from my son, these deaths are a result from some kind of club Initiation. IE: They have to achieve a top speed of over 140. certifiable by club radar to get in. Don't know if its true or not.

No, no, no. Speed never killed anyone. It's the sudden stop that does it.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Funny how the baby boomer's seem to forget just how stoopid we were when young too, yours truly included. I often wonder if thats' why our country is becoming a police state, another topic.

I'm very glad that is not my son but feel for the father/family, no matter what the cause, that is heartbreaking. Maybe it's just closer to home when your a dad.

shit happens eh? and it will continue to happen.

Some were eatin by dinosaurs, some are killed on bikes....and even more are killed in stooooopid religious wars. RIP dude.
