Homicide at a cycle crash. Why?

Because the Boston Police Department does not have another unit that investigates non-natural deaths?

If a car driver hit this motorcycle and the motorcyclist subsequently dies, wouldn't you consider that a homicide?

(Not a homicide if this was a "one-bike" accident, but we may not know that yet.)

I came upon the scene right after it happened and it looked like the biker was most likely going straight through the intersection on A Street and was hit by an SUV turning left from A onto Broadway. The front of the SUV was pretty destroyed as was the bike.

Good point. Homicide just means a person killed by another person. It is a fairly common misconception that homicide = murder.

This is my friend, he was killed by a man talking on a cell phone while driving. A person who was an amazing selfless genuinely kind young man is gone now. What phone call is worth a life, senseless homicide by car for sure

Sorry to hear about you losing your friend. Was he local to Southie? I’ve seen the memorial set up this week at the corner of A st & Broadway.
