I just have to wonder that I am seeing these pictures and hoping the family was notified first - I think seeing their loved one on Patch before they even know would be quite a shock... I hope the guy is OK...

Have some respect and drop the closeups of the victim, terrible if his family has to find out this way. There is a fine line in photojournalism and the Patch crosses it at will!!!

I agree with Tony, Where are the pictures of the woman who was driving the car. The story sounds a little one sided. People need to have more respect for motorcycle riders, with today's economy there will be a lot more on the road.

Actually, first on scene was Louis Fenech, the owner of Royal Holiday Travel, who is also a volunteer with the Civil Air Patrol. He secured the scene, steering traffic around the accident, and helped both accident victims until the police and ambulance arrived. He is clearly visible in the above photos. Good job, Lou!
