I was stuck in the traffic this morning on EW Connector and when made the pass at the scene I note it was a very bad motorcycle vs. truck accident. Anyone know if the parties are ok?? Find myself worried about those individuals and can't locate anything on the internet. Thanks, DRS

Thank you for your kind words, His wife bought his motorcycle from us, he loved riding that bike everywhere he went.

Can you shed any light on the accident, we were only told that the vehicle turned out in front of him....

Thank You.

My heart goes out to his wife - I have known her for about 25 - 26 years. She called me this morning and informed me of the accident. She is going to need all the prayers there are for healing - if that is at all possible.

The truck was heading west on the E/W connector and turned left onto Highlands Ridge in front of the motorcyle coming from the opposite direction. I did not talk to the driver of the truck but know he was very upset. There are security cameras at the intersection so I'm sure they will help with the investigation. Please give my sympathy to the family.

I ride my motorcycle through this intersection every day, this news deeply moves me, and my attitude towards riding my bike defensively, my thoughts will be with the riders loved ones and will mark my passage through there for some time.

This is my cousin's husband. I just spoke to my Aunt becuse I just heared about it.
They are going this morning to make arangements. It really hurts so much that a few weeks ago we had a Family reunion and it was the first one I every went to. I was looking forward to seeing Pam & David, but they got stuck at a service station because it was pouring down rain so hard. They were riding on the motorcycle. They show up later, but a lot of us were gone. Life is to short, forgive and forget. Tell that person how you feel because no one is promised tomorrow. RIP. David.You are a wonderful Husband & Dad...Please keep the family in your prayers.

David was one of the most caring men you'd ever meet. He was a dear friend of ours and our love for him was unconditional. I pray for comfort and peace to be with his wife and two children left behind and for all of his friends and family. We will truly miss him. - God Bless.
