    This story needs some re-work Scott…. if they were all going the same way on the inside lane and the motorcycles tried to pass the SUV why was there even an accident? Or was somebody going the wrong way? And who died? Did 1 of the 2 Harley riders pass-away at the hospital later? Was the other motorcycle even involved? I am confused on this one! 🙁
