Heres some questions I would ask:
What was on the other side of the road that Avenger didn't have a shoulder?
If there was a shoulder: why didn't the Avenger slam on his brakes and pull onto the shoulder?
Why did the Avenger think going head on into a group on bikes was better than hitting the Civic?
Why do motorcycle packs feel like 10 miles under the speed limit, travelling in a long cluster is a good idea?
Why didn't the motorcycles slow down to let the Civic back in?
How can you not track down a GOLD late model Civic?
Why isn't someone curb stomping the driver of the Civic right now?
Like many motorcycle books say there is no such thing as accident, just tragic avoidable events. We can trace the fault to the Civic for passing without enough distance available, or the Avenger for panicking and choosing an unfortunate course of action. However, you can also trace some of the blame to the motorcycle pack hogging the road, and making it difficult to over take them. I get annoyed with the packs in my area sometimes. I can see a more ignorant driver losing it, and trying to pass without paying attention to oncoming, especially they have been stuck behind them for a while.
I know this is a motorcycle forum, and they were the victims, and are they dead, and it's in poor taste saying anything negative about the victim in the United States, especially if they were following the 'law'. However, from the cruiser packs that I've observed in the friendly south, they probably weren't exactly blame free.
