When Michigan State Police arrived they found that the rider had been thrown into oncoming traffic and was hit by another vehicle.  The male victim is William Madden, a 46-year-old Hastings man.

    Why do the reporters on Fox always comment that the rider was not wearing a helmet if it was a injury or fatal motorcycle crash. Yet, when the rider WAS wearing a helmet and was injured or killed, it's not mentioned? Can we say BIASED news reporting?
