The motorcyclist was transported to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries, Lamb said.
I am always amazed at how some people drive when they get behind (or for that matter, in front of) motorcycles. These vulnerable users of the road do not have chameleon abilities, nor do they move all that quietly. So how come accidents like this continue happening, with people not able to see or hear them until a serious bump happens? The sun wasn't a factor, the roadway wasn't, this occurred on a late, rainless summer afternoon, that leaves the fault squarely on the Custer driver who sandwiched this poor guy.
It is refreshing to see an article like this where the Mason County Sheriff's deputy actually admit the driver was at fault, but will they decide to actually issue a ticket for once? Lack of proper enforcement for such incidents only encourage unsafe driving around bicyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians, and a two-tiered traffic justice system where vulnerable victims aren't given their fair shake for the primary reason that they weren't in a vehicle also.
