Thought he might make it.
This rider was the nephew of a friend. They really thought he was going to pull through. The 17 year old Mercedes driver turned left directly into him as she was talking on her cell phone.
From today's Providence Journal:
Bristol man dies of injuries from motorcycle crash
01:00 AM EDT on Friday, August 5, 2005
A Bristol man injured in a motorcycle accident last week has died.
Patrick McKenna, 21, of Cliff Drive, was driving a 2002 Suzuki motorcycle southbound on County Road on July 25 at about 10:15 p.m. when he was struck by a 1989 Mercedes station wagon driven by a 17-year-old Barrington girl who was turning into a parking lot.
McKenna was thrown from his motorcycle.
"It appears at this point based on the investigation that [McKenna] had no time to react," said Barrington Detective Sgt. Dino DeCrescenzo.
McKenna spent nine days in critical condition at Rhode Island Hospital before he died yesterday.
"It's still under investigation, but at this point it doesn't appear anything rises to criminal charges," DeCrescenzo said of the young driver. "She's going to be issued some traffic charges, but nothing criminal at this point."
