3 Dead In Ariz. Motorcycle Crash At Least 8 Motorcycles Involved In Crash That Left 6 People Injured, Police Say

I'm re-posting this tragic story after reading about it on Mr. Motorcycle's blog. It's important, please read and pay attention on the road people!

(Thank's Mark for posting this story in the first place and bringing it to our attention.)

PHOENIX -- At least three people are dead after a sanitation truck collided with eight motorcycles on the Carefree Highway near 27th Avenue, police said.

The motorcycle riders involved in the accident were part of Phoenix MC Kruzer’s.
An off-duty fire captain, Ernie Lizarraga, a 22-year veteran on the Phoenix Fire Department force, was among those critically injured in the crash.

Police said at least eight motorcycles on a group ride had stopped at a red light on the Carefree Highway when they were hit from behind by the sanitation truck. The truck then caught on fire, officers said. (story continued here)
 My thoughts go out to those families who lost a loved one in this terrible crash.
