There was an eyewitness that commented on the previous version of this page before he was id'd. She said he was lane splitting faster than traffic, was going pretty fast and clipped the rear of the SUV, which was turning left. He had no reaction time due to the speed according to the witness. Essentially, he was at fault.

Unless the SUV had a green left turn arrow (and I don't think there is one at that intersection), the bike would not be at fault.

There is no turn signal at that light. The SUV made a left in front of the motorcycle. Whether speeding or not, the motorcycle had the right of way. Regardless, a young man is dead and to write a comment to blame him is pretty heartless.

That's my colleague! We welded together. We used to be close but not anymore. I can't express how I feel, just sick. The last time I saw him he had apologized for something he had done. I'm sorry you had to go like this Brandon.
