My fiance was driving right behind it when it happened. She was very shook up. Something happened up ahead and several motorcycles had just passed her going the speed limit according to her. Everyone just locked up the brakes so fast. Several of them went to the sides and were okay but 2 bikes hit cars in front. Seems like those are the ones that are injured. She was able to get stopped in time but witnessed it all first in line of the traffic behind them.

I tell you it's scary on a bike around the streets now. I raced motorcycles at high speeds on big race tracks for several years and you couldn't pay me to ride one around a city or highway anymore. Just too many variables out of the rider's control. A car is much larger than a bike and can stop much faster contrary to what most think.

Hopefully everyone will be okay.
