Motorcycle vs Buzzard

David Christopher Norris, 31, was tooling around Maryland on Sunday afternoon and it was to be his final ride.

Police report that Norris was speeding excessively when he passed a car on the shoulder and as he did, a buzzard flew into his path impacting into Norris and his bike.  This caused Norris to cross the center stripes of the road, hitting the curb, a utility pole and a fire hydrant – all while the giant bird was “attached” to Norris and his bike.

Norris, his bike and the bird all finally landed in a wooded area along the roadside.

The bird died instantly, Norris was pronouced dead later at the hospital.  Police called it a “freakish accident” and think Norris’ speed was a factor.

The Things They’ll Find After You Die

In Australia, a 52 year old man riding a motorcycle was killed in a horrible accident when his bike collided head first with an 18-wheeler.

His body was burned and mangled so badly it took authorities time to correctly identify his remains.  In fact, the wreck was so intense that police began to wonder if it was not a suicide.  Finally, they ID’d the body and went to the man’s home to inform the 48 year old woman that lives at the same address about the man’s fate.

When they arrived there was no answer at the door and signs that there had been no activity at the house in several days.  Police forced their way into the home and after a search made a grizzly discovery.  The woman they were looking for was dead and stuff into the home’s refrigerator.  There are reports the woman’s remains had been cut up and packaged into the freezer section, but police are denying that.  But they do admit that the condition of the body is such that they have yet to fully ID the remains.

The also claim to have turned up a possible object that was used in the murder of the woman.  Police now think both bodies are the result of a murder/suicide.
