    Is this a transcript of the audio? Or are people texting this? How quickly does someone transcribe the conversation?

    @Steve – The California Highway Patrol makes their text dispatches available on the Internet via a continuously updated XML file. Some info about that here.

    What is a white bike doing at the scene of the accident? I am sorry for the pain of Ms. Ward’s family and friends, but please do not affect other people’s children. It is eery to see a lit up white bike on the side of the road at night. She was riding where there is no bike lane and the bikes merge with cars. It was a risky move.
