Heartbreaking story. Sadly, no punishment can undo what has been done.

Upsetting incident

Post by Jamstealer » Wed Aug 02, 2017 8:02 pm

On the subject of caution and so on; my pompier ( And biker) neighbour was at an accident on the weekend. 63 year old guy on an RT 1150 got impatient and overtook a truck on a solid white line.
Unfortunately a 32 tonner was approaching on the oncoming side. Both trucks in their lanes and under the speed limit.
They scraped what they could find of him off the front of the truck into a bag.
Most of the bike went under the truck and hit a car that was following behind the truck.

Head strong, my time is most important, I can't be late........

Throw the whole library at the driver!

kitcarman, hope your wife can see her way after the accident, she'll have another big haul to see the process through, in court but more importantly in her thoughts.

We are all behind her, and you too.....

Further to my other post I echo Brian's sentiments regarding your wife, respect to her and what she has done and intends to do. Hopefully time will heal (it does).

Thank you for sharing. Best wishes to your wife as she deals with the emotional (and bureaucratic) side of this incident - I hope she takes some comfort from knowing that she was there to hold someone at the end.
