Where do you start to try and make sense of a motorcycle accident like this? One can only think of the poor parents who are sure to be overwrought with guilt over letting their young son drive a motorcycle and especially over letting him take the sister for a ride on it. Life if fragile and it takes just the slightest miscalculation when riding on a motorcycle to cause the death of a loved one and a lifetime of misery for the survivors of such a tradgedy. Out hearts and prayers go out to the poor survivors of this family tradgedy.
