Defense attorney Brian Mason called the incident “an unfortunate accident” and said the motorcycle may have been in the blind spot of Eggers’ vehicle. He said Eggers pulled over soon after exiting the bridge and has cooperated with police.
So the guys defense is that he was "exchanging words" with the riders on the bike but actually didn't know they were there because they 'may have been in his blind spot'?

That attorney should be embarrassed to stand in front of a Judge and spew that crap. A 10 year old could dream up a better excuse.

The driver is a menace and has been for a long time...
