Nashville, July 18 - Four motorcyclists died in a three vehicle accident Sunday evening in Brown County.

The Brown County Sheriff's Department says four people on two motorcycles attempted to pass a car on northbound State Road 35 north of Nashville. When the bikes entered the southbound lane, they were struck head-on by a Hummer.

Three victims died at the scene, the fourth was taken by helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis where she later died.

The victims are identified as Joseph D. Spicer, Laura Ross and Michael Stinson all from North Vernon and Malia Wormer of Columbus.

No one in the Hummer was injured.

That is a terrible tragedy. However, you know some group is going to blame the HUMMER and it's driver for the deaths of those people.

Check out the article in the current issue of Motorcycle Consumer News. According to the author of that article, this report is biased against the motorcyclists because of the use of the word "died." The writer posits that if news reports such as this were even-handed or baised in favor of the motorcyclists, the report would have read "four motorcyclists were killed." A "killing" implies an unjustified act at the hand of another, while, the author claims, a "death" is more natural or at least a loss of life caused by other than an external source.

Aside from all that, most authorities on motorcycling recommend against passing on a blind curve because of the possibility of encountering a large, hard, moving object in the other lane. Sounds like the bikers gambled and lost.

Very tragic, but passing without a clear line of sight to make sure it's safe might get them a nomination for a Darwin Award.

I'm sure that if the big nasty Hummer had been a nice friendly Hybrid the motorcyclists would have been magically whisked away to a lakeside picnic. More likely the Hybrid driver would have been killed by the motorcyclists.
