Re: Pair die in Queens motorcycle---Q47 bus crash

I doubt they could have held this one as a preventable. The cyclist was parked at the curb, then suddenly started up and tried to beat the bus and U-turn in front of it. He felt he could perform this stupid maneuver, then suddenly turned right into the front right corner and was knocked down - how stupid can one be if you don't know what traffic is on the other side of the bus? Sorry to say I didn't feel any sympathy for him. It all happened within a matter of seconds and there was no way the bus could have been brought to a halt to avoid hitting him. Rated non-preventable.
