Tragic news.

sounds like a reverse of the scene in SOA where Jax does himself in.

They arrested the guy and charged him with 7 counts of vehicular homicide. Probably because he had a DUI before. At this point we don't know what happened, could have blown a tire on the truck or some other mechanical condition that caused the accident. It is reported that the trailer was what hit the bikes, not the truck. The trailer jackknifed and something caused that to happen. Whatever it was has not been reported yet. If the harley riders we riding in tandem rather than staggered as many HD riders tend to do, there is no place for the inside rider to go if something goes wrong. That's why any rider in a group should ride staggered with enough room between bikes to be able to get out of harm's way.
