Rattling its leaves over the dead biker, the forest whispered its sympathies to the wounded spruce.

But you seemed to have shorted him a few letters off his Christian name (but I'm partial to Lodovico, myself).

Good one.

This is a great story start or mystery setup. Alas, it does not feel complete to me. Probably make part of a good drabble, though.
