I don't see either how this could be the rider's fault.
He might have been an inexperienced rider and maybe a bit too cautious, but that is no reason to be rearended, especially by a trained professional driver.
Courts hold commercial drivers to higher standards and I think it only fair to ask for Law Enforment to be held to the same standards.
The officer should have recognized the situation and adjusted his driving accordingly.

I was wondering about that too.
In California (I assume in other States as well), after an accident, it is illegal to decline to exchange insurance information.
So I think it would have been proper to ask for the Officer's information.
