Is that a motorcycle as well as a car?

Wonder who's fault that was? Whats the betting that it was caused by either inappropriate speed or lack of attention. Ie the car driver either didn't see the bike or the bike was going past too fast.

Have you sent the photos to the local newspaper or nationals?

Bradley Wakefield suggested a place that you send the photos to and they contact the papers and arrange payments, but keep 50% of the fee. It's worth it because they know who to contact within each newspaper.  :tup:
