Rider Down

Worked a motorcycle wreck yesterday, lady pulled out in front of a rider. He never had a chance, air lifted to UT Medical but didn't make it. Prayers for all involved.

Stay alert out there guys.

rider down

Had it happen to me--woman looked me right in the eye and pulled right out in front of me. I dropped the bike w/o injury fortunately other than the fairing and the bike wasn't 15 minutes old
Prayers to the family

We hear of this type of accident way to often.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
