I'm pretty sure this is the same guy who has been ripping up and down the street I live on, making as much noise as possible so everyone in the neighborhood knows he's there. Every time he left a stop sign, it was a display of acceleration, and noise. With his irresponsible way of operating his motorcycle, it was only a matter of time before something like this happened. Thank God no one else was hurt. Hopefully, he will fill out the organ donor card before he starts riding recklessly again, and maybe he'll save someone else's life.
