  1. There had been quite a number of E.M.S.vehicle along with police cars / jeeps for this accident. Why weren’t the manpower use to track down them that do think they are “gangsters” traveling around firing live ammo in public ?

      • Justabermudianlady says:

        Please tell us what OBA had to do with the accident? You talk foolishness.

        • bdaboy says:

          The OBA is white, except for its black members, so therefore it’s at fault.

  3. Come Correct says:

    Saw 2 out of 3 police bikes overtake on a corner this week. No lights, no sirens, no training plates or vests. This comes as no surprise.

  6. Shell says:

    Just curious, but how is that “addition” on the back of the car legal? Wouldn’t this create a huge blind spot?

    • islandguy says:

      Or a chin catcher:)

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      what does the addition have to do with the car being rear ended..? if that was me on the bike i would be in court for due care and attention in 3 months time…regardless of the aerodynamic addition to the car…if you hit something from the rear then you are guilty of lack of attention.

    Glad to know both parties are ok.

  8. 69RSSS says:

    Is that a car or a really goofy looking plane?

  9. more than enough says:

    That cop obviously can’t ride, the car is pulled to the side…the “third lane” is clear as a bell in the picture. And he couldn’t have been going very fast as there doesn’t appear to be much damage. He must have been dreaming, can’t ask for a much straighter road than that.
    Oh well just tack it on the bill… the bps seems to have a propensity for for buying new fancy vehicles.
    If it is found to be his own neglect he should have to pay for both vehicles to be fixed.

      Dumb Dumb. How do u even know that they were going in the same direction. And clearly the roads were wet. People need to stick to wat they know. Ujs

      • more than enough says:

        He hit the back of the car idiot look at the picture!

        • more than enough says:

          The picture also reveals that it rained after the crash.
          Under the jeep is dry.
          “Can’t touch this!”

          Probably on his cell phone

      • foldgers says:

        Actually it is dry under the police vehicle that RESPONDED to the accident. According to forensics, that would indicate that at the time of response, the road was dry. The rain pattern around the responding vehicle indicates a shower AFTER the vehicle had stopped. Meaning that at the time of impact, the road was in fact dry. Also had the wetness of the road , been a contributing factor the impact would have been much more pronounced. It appeas that a momentary lapse in concentration may have been at fault.

        • more than enough says:

          That’s what I said under the jeep is dry. Obviously the jeep is one of the responders the bike is laying on the road at the scene of the crash, you don’t need forensics to figure that out.

          • foldgers says:

            Im not being petty but you said it at 10;26 pm, I had already said it at 9 ;34 am. this is for more than enough. Just making that notation.

    Tailgating? Never heard of the 2 second rule? Maybe the driver of the car ‘saw a cat’ run across the road & slammed brakes.

    That stupid looking spoiler must make a huge difference in car performance at 50K.

    • sage says:

      Stop hatin’, what about the “police” race car in the parade yesterday, it had a huge wing and nitrous bottles on the trunk lid!
