Does anyone know who was riding the motorcycle that wrecked on New Bowling Green Rd. this afternoon? Occured just before you get to Hwy.685. Airlifted out. Happened about 5:30.

he was flown to vanderbilt after his motorcycle wreck yesterday afternoon. He had a collapsed lung & lots of internal bleeding, 2 compound fractures to his right leg, & his right arm is broke. He remains in critical but stable condition in the ICU, and has already gone back in for another surgery to address his leg, right hand, and abdomen which was left open due to possible swelling

God Bless this young man and his family, I will certainly say a prayer for them and the seven cars that went past that accident when a lady tried to wave them down for help.

Amen to that, ALLAN! I will never understand why it's a law that you have to wear a seatbelt but not a motorcycle helmet. It makes no sense at all. Personally, there's no way that I'd get on a cycle without a helmet, and I think people who ride and don't wear a helmet are just stupid.

not wearing a helmit just makes the ride go smoother because u can see around you better . thats why that law was passed. but i agree. if that young man wasnt wearing a helmit , he prob wouldnt be holding on to life right now. id like to have a bike but ppl dont watch for them and one little slip and its over . u roll across that pavement . hope this man gets out ok.

if you believe that,then you really don't need a motorcycle.dang I guess NASCAR would never wreck if they would quit wearing those helmit's. but really ,this is about Blake getting better. he was a super good football player and tuff as nail's.
yup its me

umm, i think this person was saying . riding a bike makes it easier to see around you without a helmet , which is true. it just feels good . is that easier? anyway ppl know what this post is about and i frankly saw a word saying 'i hope he makes it out ok" i for one would not ride without a helmet . but its just a chance you take. stop being so angry and just support the post . a man is hurt and should be respected in all asspects of the case here.
