    Was the motorcycle driver wearing a helmet? A car turning into or in front of a motorcycle is a very common occurrence and unfortunately most of the time it doesn’t end well for the driver of the motorcycle. I hope this story is updated with the names of the car driver, motorcyclist and his daughter along with more info on the accident itself. Our prayers are with the young daughter and her family.

    Would the wearing of the helmet make this acciident any better ?? What is wrong is that the CAR cut the MOTORCYCLE off or turned in front of him. The motorcycle driver and passenger did nothing wrong. Helmet or no helmet.
