This happened yesterday evening in-front of a co-workers house, as a trained fist aid responder she was the first on the scene. She was working in her yard when she heard a loud bike accelerating aggressively up her street. There was a loud bang then absolute silence. Her responder instincts kicked in and she ran out to the street. There was a pickup in her neighbors yard with a motorcycle under it, and the rider was 40 ft or so further down the road.
She ran up to the rider who was wearing a full face helmet, but flip flops, shorts a tee shirt. Limbs were the twisted the wrong way and internal parts that should not be poking out were. She tried to stop the bleeding with what was available, and by the time the fire department showed up the rider was starting to wake up. When they opened his visor, his breath reeked of alcohol, even the firemen were taken aback. The rider was taken away via Medivac helo.
The bike appeared to be a black Ducati or similar sport bike, (flat black paint, exterior tubular frame) but she couldn't see much as it was under the pick up. Hopefully nobody from here??
Sounds like a combination of asshat drunken riding and a left turn gone horribly wrong for the pickup driver. I guess fault could go either way depending on who saw what and what can be proved.
Could the pick up driver be at fault (failure to yield) even if the rider was drunk and speeding?
