Why is it headlined as a motorcycle crash and not a car and motorcycle involved in collision , it’s a bit like headlining that it’s the motorbike riders fault ?

This was an upsetting incident for the casualty, and lesser so for others who didn’t have a clue what had happened as traffic in the High Street built up. Congratulations to the two ladies who so efficiently directed the 2-way traffic in the High Street, and those who stopped to give assistance and shelter to the casualty until the emergency services arrived.
