The trooper activates his flashing lights and checks the front of his car, which caught fire.
He was advised not to talk about the accident. It's still under investigation. But the couple on the motorcycle talked about what happened.
"I think I went off to the left side. I couldn't see her at all and we just slid and slid and slid. The only time it wouldn't hurt for two seconds is when my helmet would hit the ground," said Corey Waldman.
The couple credits their helmets for saving their lives.
