There are many possible reasons a motorcycle may crash into a parked car. The most common reason, is that the person inside the parked car opened their door, and the motorcyclist collide with the door. Another possibility is the rider lost control of the motorcycle, causing it to crash into the car. A motorcyclist may lose control for any number of reasons, including slippery road conditions, a bike or part malfunction, the influence of drugs or alcohol, or driver inattention. In this particular incident, authorities have not yet reported any potential explanations.
