Default Motorcycle Crash

So i was driving to a friends house today, down one of the main Highways in Alpena, and i had to pull over for at least 4 cops, a firetruck, an ambulance, and a few first responders. I knew something bad had happend. I kept going and about a mile and a half later i was at a complete standstill. Took a while but cops directed traffic through a private drive around an accident which i got to see the whole seen of the accident and as i was driving around it i saw them covering a body with a sheet, so i knew someone was dead.
I've never seen anything like that before, it was pretty hard to swallow. Just seeing the body laying there and them covering it up it was hard to see...

Just so you know the picture they have on there seems a little graphic...

Worst accident I ever saw was when a jetta lost control and flipped then crashed almost right in front of me. Driving past the car all 4 passengers were bloody and knocked unconscious sitting in the car. Looks like they all had their seatbelts on thank goodness.

Bikes are now very common on the roads with the great weather. On Sunday we had four motorcycle collisions in our service area, one resulted in a fatality at scene.

Drive / ride with care and look out for each other

Was the pic changed? This doesn't seem too graphic.
