The Bronx motorcycle accident occurred about 2:00 am when the victim-- who was reportedly traveling home from the memorial along with "approximately 20" members of the Tru 31 Motorcycle Club he co-founded-- rear-ended a sedan and was sent into a guardrail.

No One Stops After Man is Run Over Multiple Times in the Bronx

Q: Who is at fault if multiple drivers hit a pedestrian?
