At approximately 6pm last night an operator of a bullet bike was killed in an accident with an SUV. GR Police Chief Steffan gives details in the linked audio.

The bike struck the front quarter panel of the SUV, and the bike followed the rider over the top of the vehicle eventually landing on him. It is unclear at this time whether or not the initial impact caused the fatality or if the bike landing on top of him did.
