All things being equal, most people would agree that in an accident between a van and a motorcycle, the motorcycle loses, right ? Wrong. Sometimes everyone loses.

Yesterday in Jersey Shore, Pa. that was far from the case when two idiots on cycles were racing down Rt 220 in this Lycoming County community and one ran into the side of a van full of people at an extremely high rate of speed. The 20 year old cyclist died on impact, burrying his machine deep into the side of the van, flipping it over. The five people trapped inside the van (one of which was a 25 year veteran of Jersey Shore Fire Dept.) and all died when the van expoded in flames.

Our hearts go out to a brother and his loved ones.
