    My cousin didn’t have a chance on a motorcycle years ago with a car pulling out in front of him. I hope this biker a full recovery…By the way, I am not blaming the car driver since I do not know how this happened. I just hope the biker the best of care and recovery.

    Came up on the accident right after it happened. My boys & I prayed for him right then. Continue to pray for him this morning.

    There was actually 2 motorcycles versus the car that ran a red light. They are injured severly with many serious injuries, I was told the car driver was looking at a cell phone, driving on a suspended license, and couldn’t find her insurance card (yea right). This is my Aunt and Uncle, this tragedy that didn’t have to happen. How many have to be hurt by people not paying attention to the road.
