DEKALB COUNTY

Motorcyclist killed in 3-vehicle wreck|

A motorcyclist was killed in a collision involving two other vehicles at 12:45 p.m. Tuesday on I-285 westbound near Candler Road, according to DeKalb County police. Sgt. Pat White said Desmond Tabannah, 38, of Citation Drive, Decatur, was attempting to pass between a Ford pickup hauling a horse trailer and another vehicle a half mile east of I-285. "Witnesses said he was traveling at a high rate of speed, hit the trailer, and was thrown from the motorcycle," White said. Tabannah was dead at the scene he added. The truck driver, and a horse being carried in the trailer, were unhurt. No charges were filed against the drivers, White said.

As Fark would say: DUMBASS.

Derogatory nickname for stupid sportbike riders. Distinguishing features include: not wearing any protective gear (hence my comment about shorts/tank top), speeding everywhere, cutting in and out of lanes, splitting lanes at highway speeds, doing wheelies at highway speeds, burnouts, and just generally being a dumbass. They give us responsible riders a bad name (and higher insurance rates).

They're mandatory here in GA. Whether he actually bothered to buckle it or not is a different story.

Wait - he died trying to squeeze inbetween two vehicles while speeding on a motorcycle, and you give him that much benefit of the doubt? And like I said, only protective eyewear is mandatory in IL, and DeKalb county, at least the one mentioned here, is in IL . . ..

I remember they used to say that back in the day about wreckless sportbike riders because after they fell ( at a high rate of speed without their protective gear), they'd look like a squid... all limp and mushy with no bone structure left to support their body.

That's why it's important to wear your protective gear, people!

lol, that would make sense

That reminds me of this stupid lady who walked in front of me and 2 other cars as soon as the light turned green. I slammed on the brakes as she feebly ran by but a red Ranger pickup hit her going 5-10mph. She kinda bounced 5 feet off, picked herself up and kept running across the intersection mumbling to herself.

Here in Ky a few years back they repealed the helmet law. People all over especially HD riders have sunglasses and nothing else on. Yes it is a backward state...

It's one thing to split lanes when traffic is backed up and not moving. This dipshit tried to get between the truck and car at full speed.

What do you think caused him to crash? Just misjudged and made contact, or like maybe the turbulence between the two cars or something?

/me has never ridden a motorcycle and doesen't know much about the riding aspect. :p

Maybe both. Turbulence behind big trucks can definitely move you around a bit. I'd imagine it would be pretty bad in the relatively small space between the car and the truck.
