I hope the young motorcyclist involved in the accident doesn't die. I happen to be driving by that intersection 10-15 mins. after the accident happened, and pulled over to make sure someone had called the paramedics. And was surprised at the fact that the paramedics and police didn't arrive until 20 mins. after the accident.

I'm not sure at what point I got there but I saw a black matt painted car on the corner and thought it was weird that it was parked there then the guy got back in his car and rushed off and I. Thought he looked strange cos his face looked panicked and i we had eyecontact and I remember him being extremely dark skinned with short curly hair and the car was black with possibly tinted black windows cos he was wearing a white tshirt and I thought it stood out next too all that darkness then I saw the biker moving and suddenly realised that he may have hit and run him! I called cops and left my details and they said someone would call if they needed me...don't know if any of this is relevant but wanted to leave info incase it was important

I got there 10-15 mins. after the accident, and made sure an ambulance was on the way. 20 mins. later; Sheriff cars, paramedics, and firemen arrived. The Sheriff officers got information from witnesses who saw the accident. So you might want to go and request a report from them, because a report was filed.
