Reports like these , it would be nice to know why ??? If motorcyclist was driving within the rules of the highway code, then I hope he is not too badly injured and has speedy recovery…. but if was not within the rules, then he is only to blame.

Somebody’s son/father/brother/ partner etc laid in the middle of the road undoubtedly hurt, and all you can be is a sanctimonious [email protected]
Obviously one of the hate brigade

So it couldn’t possibly be the car drivers fault then? Like not being aware of other road users, driving too close to the biker, pulling out on the bike. Please do not make assumptions.

What’s the betting you are a motorcyclist looking to blame a car driver, even though there’s nothing to say a car was involved.
