I was the 3rd car on the scene of this accident, as I saw his limp body lying on the pavement, my heart sank. I saw 2 bicycle riders on the phone talking to 911, I'm guessing, standing near him and one said "are u okay buddy" but the motorcyclist was unconscious. Horrible. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

I was at this exact location yesterday, Sunday, standing in the spot of where it happened and I just couldn't see how this happened. So sad and tragic. It's pretty traumatic to witness the death of a person in this matter. Please talk to someone to avoid further trauma. I know I witnessed something similar years ago and to this day, I still have nightmares.
