There is rarely a beautiful week end without a few serious or fatal bike accidents.

The drivers and riders of these bikes are unknowingly and unwilling organ donors.

We pray for their safety and thank them for their organ contributions to society.

Jimbo are are a miserable piece of ghetto trash yourself. For your information, Jordan Spence was an exceptional young man, who went to church every Sunday, did no drugs or sold no drugs. God forbid you should ever lose a child. I hope you burn in Hell!!!

I agree. I only knew him briefly but he was the most responsible young man that i had ever seen in a while. My heart goes out to his family :-(

I first met Jordan about 4 years ago. He came into my store as a customer and has remained a friend ever since. I always said he was going to do something big with his life; he really had the motivation that most 30 year olds lack (let alone a 17 year old). It was very clear how educated he was and how much more educated he would become, graduating from high school and college. Jordan had a great sense of humor, always kept a “funny-tough” persona, and behind that was a strong hearted person.
To the people that think his death is a joke because he’s “just some kid from McKeesport”, I feel sorry that you didn’t have the honor of shaking his hand; you are the folks who have lost the most. I’m glad I knew Jordan and so is everyone else that knew him.
PS: I’m also from McKeesport with a McKeesport education, I’ve been in business for over 7 years and I’m successful at what I do. If I died tomorrow it saddens me to think about how this ignorance remains within people; perhaps I may be subject to such horrible comments as well because I’m a “McKeesport hood rat”….

Don't worry.... you will. NOTHING good has ever come out of the Port. Nothing you say will ever change the minds of all of the rest of society living outside the port looking in.

I knew Jordan for over 10 years. Such a great kid and this was very sad news. Jimbo you are a Donnie Downer! I'm 37 years old and my wife and I are both from McKeesport. We have 3 beautiful children, I'm a software developer and my wife is a lawyer. Just because you're obviously going nowhere in life doesn't mean everybody from McKeesport is going to do the same. Looser! Btw - we managed to move out of McKeesport just like Jordan and most others who grow and better their lives. Life is what YOU make it.

But some of us can afford to move to the Haler Heights ghetto only.

Sorry for your loss.

I am a rider myself and its like riders have targets on their backs. Drivers in cars are so rude and discourteous....riding our tails, cutting us off, speeding up to prevent us from passing. Then they wonder why we try and get ahead of all the idiots by weaving thru traffic and get ahead if it all.

Every time there is a bike wreck some yahoo mouths off saying it was the rider's fault. When in something like 75% of bike accidents, the rider was NOT at fault....instead, its usually a brain dead driver on the cell phone or eating or applying makeup.

Prayers out to your brother and all riders out there.

As an aside, you cant expect much from Topix. Lots of trolls here hiding behind their keyboard. They take every opportunity they can to take cheap shots and flame things up. There are a few of us that are legit, but many are not.
