    The motorcycle has damage to the rear. How was it he ran into the minivan and no damage was to the front of the motorcycle. He did ran the red light, but it doesn't make sense that the damage it to the rear of the motorcycle. He was wearing a helmet. I know the family and I have his finance and children in my prayers.

    I wonder if the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet? My heart goes out to his family, and the woman who hit him.

    It wasnt a mini van. The motorist ran a red light at high speed when he collided with a white vehicle. Please keep me updated with this. My heart goes out to his family. Im sorry
