Most were reportedly Marine Vets. New Hampshire highway collision leaves 7 motorcyclists dead, 3 injured I think it's safe to assume all those bikers did NOT swerve into the lane of the oncoming truck. What a tragedy. The news story doesn't yet identify the driver of the truck or even if he survived or not. Running head on into a big heavy machine like a Harley can do significant damage even to a truck like the one in this accident. If you ride motorcycles, this has got to be on your mind a lot when your ride (if you're the least bit concerned with safety) You can be doing everything right, and someone in a car or truck can be distracted on the phone etc and take your life in an instant. Thoughts and Prayers to the survivors and their families.
