Yesterday I was in Brooklyn teaming up with a breaking news photographer. We ended up at the scene of a horrific accident.
A motorcyclist collided with a dump truck and landed under the tire of the contracting truck, which was filled with dirt. Before the authorities could get there, the motorcyclist had died.
It is actually very similar to a story I covered in the summer of 2009, when a noted speaker at a Quaker conference in Blacksburg was killed by a dump truck while riding a bicycle on campus.
