A 26-year-old Jacksonville motorcyclist was killed Sunday in a crash on 103rd Street.

Billy Gene Gibbs was thrown from his racing-style motorcycle after colliding with a car driven by Barbara Joan Sabens, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. She was trying to make a lefthand turn from Monroe Smith Road. Gibbs, who was wearing a helmet, was going at a high rate of speed, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Sabens told police she stopped at the stop sign, looked both ways, but did not see the motorcycle. The investigation is ongoing.

Fresh organs get your fresh organs

Wearing a helmet, responsible behavior.
Riding at a high rate of speed, irresponsible behavior.

Consequences; heartbreak for one family and possible hope for several other families.

Why are ya'll trying to justify this mans death i mean he was wearing a helmet & going a little fast it's normal!The lady that claims she didn't see him is just as much at fault as he is where's her wrap sheet huh?! This man was my cousins best friend who also happens to not be with us today he past away in 1999 at the age of 16 in a drowning accident! He was always there for him no matter what & was there for us when dustin passed B.G. was an all around good guy & thats that! All i'm saying is show a little compassion & respect i mean this man just lost his life & a family has lost a father,son,uncle,cousin,& best friend! My condolences go out to the gibbs family & i'm very much sorry for your loss. R.I.P. B.G. you & Dustin hold it down up there!

lordy here we go..look douchetard...first off, we arent trying to justify his death...but the fact that he has a poor driving record including speeding, running a stop sign, etc etc...and the fact they said he was going at a high rate of speed shows a pattern..and are you to retarded to see where i put her traffic record below his? oh..and what does the other dude dying have to do with this? not a thing...

When you attack personally, you've already lost the debate...

The whole situation is simply tragic.

Hindsight is always 20/20, so be thankful you still have your vision.

It's most responsible to respectfully observe a moment of silence.

Peace.

Just a reminder, this is an opinion thread. He is stating information, and people are posting their opinions. Sorry for the loss of the young man, but this is not a place mourners should visit. There will be some sympathy, but there will also be criticism.

These are the motorist I fear most when I am on my bike. Anyone pulling out from a side street.
If you are not looking out for the other traffic while on a motorcycle, you can die.

I was driving my car the other day and someone pulled out of a side street, and almost took us out. So it's not just motorcycles, that people aren't looking out for. It was some teen girl and her friend, and the driver was on her cell phone. People just are not aware that they are driving potential weapons.

I guess I did. It said that the investigation was on going and the car was stoped and pulled out in front of the bike. She did not have the ride of way. A lot of accidents involing cars and motorcycles, you will here the driver of the car say, "I did not see the motorcycle." If you don't drive your bike as if every vehicle on the road is out to get you, you will wind up a statistic.

I grew up with BG in Arlingon, I can see the guys playing foot ball now in the church yard or working on radios and being young.16-17 years old. Its sad that this has happened to such a great guy. A driving record does not show the sympathy and compassion you had for others. It does not tell the story of your life, you were like a big brother to everyone you met.
BG- you made me laugh,and always had something to say that made the day better. I moved away, lost touch but you will forever be in our hearts.
May your memory always be a great one, told with a smile and a prayer.
