Terribly sad. Another reminder to always assume you are invisible.

What was that left to right sway called, the anti-SMIDSY maneuver? I do that all the time, I don't care how crazy I look.

1 killed, 2 injured in Biketoberfest crash

The Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The death of a pregnant woman marks the first motorcycle fatality of Biketoberfest - the annual motorcycle festival in Daytona Beach.

Police say 22-year-old Grace Scullion was a passenger on a motorcycle that was hit by another car on Friday night. Two other bikers were seriously injured in the crash.

Police say 27-year-old Joshua Baldes made a left turn in front of three motorcycles - violating their right of way. The three bikes struck the passenger side of his car. The woman died at the scene.

Jail records show Baldes was being held Saturday at the Volusia County Jail on several charges, including vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a crash with death and probation violation. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney.

at least it sounds like, for once, the police are going to do something besides slap the driver with a "failure to yield" slap on the wrist and call it a day..
