I feel absolutely horrible for the family. But this is a textbook example of a complete moron. "According to California Highway Patrol Officer Tyler Hahn, witnesses said that Garcia was driving at high speeds and splitting lanes just before he lost control of his 2018 Harley Davidson between Livermore and Tracy on I-580 a mile west of the Grant Line Road exit at about 1:05 p.m. on Sunday."

And for the record, I ride a motorcycle. But while using my brain.
