According to the National Safety Council, in most cases where a motorcycle and other vehicle collide, it is the driver of the other vehicle's fault for violating the motorcyclist's right of way. This fact serves to reinforce that drivers in the Longview area need to be on the lookout for motorcyclists.
A group of active and former Marines who liked to ride their motorcycles together experienced a horrible tragedy that left seven of them dead. Additionally, two other motorcyclists suffered injuries. One victim had to be taken via a life flight to a hospital.
