i live in hancock county. there are bike riders that ride on county roads. two and usually three to the road. it does not matter to them what time of day or night they go on the rides. they are all about bike riders rights re the road. it makes me sick, and it has made a lot of drivers very irate with the arrogant attitudes of those who refuse to get out of the way. especially when there are more than one. we are not dealing with kids. these men are adult. now, i do not know what happened out on 40 in an unlit dark 12:30 am bike ride by some local cops. but i will share this opinion. yes, people feel so sorry for the family involved, but under the circumstances of the time of the accident; i feel bad for the lady driving the car, too. many people will have to live with this for the rest of thier lives. would you want that burden on your emotional status?
she knows what has happened, and for christs sake, she has little children, so try to be more understanding. channel 8 news tried everything that they could to sensationalize this terrible accident. they slanted bias. shame on them. no one, even an officer of the law is perfect 100 percent of the time. i am afraid that these greenfield cops are trying to prove a point and win, as though this is a contest. no one has won. let it rest. use this accident to push for better education re bikes and road rules. do this in his name.

A "training course" on two wheels, at that time of night, out on a dark highway. And nobody is asking: "Why?"
What did the toxicology results show on the victim?
I know it's tragic, but if there was alcohol involved with the bike riders, did one of them possibly weave into this lady's path?

maybe she was tired, it was late. and she was tending to her autistic son. alright , it wasn't right but can we really judge, officer Will is resting , hopefully family will step in and help out with the kids if needed, but should one be taken away from her kids because she made a terrible mistake I know she has to be just beside herself, accidents happen and we deal with consequences, I hope she apolizes to his family , at least show some kind of remorse, I can't imagine how she must be feeling, GOD forgives, so should we.Let him rest in peace don't be so harsh on this lady, I don't know her or the victims but I do have a heart , and Kids, and Grand kids. Let it go- Let Go and Let GOD.

I do not know anyone involved in this.
My oppinion is: yes, the accident of hitting him any of us could possibly do. Stuff happens.
But, to continue driving, you know that is just wrong. No other answer. Especially being a retired nurse of a ICU unit? Please! NO EXCUSE for that at all!! Driving to look for a turn around till another officer passes.
I read somewhere she turned around once and checked on a dog? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
Ask me tomorrow and I may change my mind.
