  1. Scott says:

    The motorcycle also did not have its headlight on.

  2. Also, known as Highway 16. Rural, one lane in each direction, and people easily doing 60 mph+. And its the main route to Jackson Rancheria casino. This is Blood Alley.
    And if you’re on a motorcycle, you have no chance.
