It doesn't sound like they need to know anything else.... except why anyone is insane enough to ride a motorcycle during rush hour.

It's spring time with nice weather going into summer. The DC metro area is going to be inundated with these guys and their high-speed motorcycles zipping up and down the minor and major thoroughfares of the area. More will die as a result of speed, fact.

I didn't see the accident, but saw the poor young man on the ground with blood pouring out of his head. His helmet had been knocked off. There have been more accidents in that precise intersection (just past the Little River Turnpike/Beauregard intersection, in front of the diner) over the years then I can mention. Cars often try to make u-turns right in front of on-coming traffic. Something needs to be done about that are.
