Motorcyclist dies after being rear-ended

Posted on Aug 01, 2016

This is the second time this week I’ve read about a motorcyclist being injured in a rear end collision. Unfortunately this one today, the man died. The crash report doesn’t give us many details.

Reporting sources KMALAND, OBITUARY, KJAN, KCIM, KSOM AND KS957.

There are no details about why the driver failed to stop before striking him.
