So, is the guy going to go to court? The report may not have been made public, but it does not mean he was not drunk. Did his insurance pay for his stay in El Paso? According to some who know him, no, it did not. The person is saying he killed her since he chose to drink and drive. It was a preventable tragedy. I hope you mean her family have suffered enough, especially her family.

Everyone knows they were coming from a 4th party and were drinking heavily. I can't believe Lila's family are letting this go as an unfortunate tragedy. A beautiful life was taken because of stupidity. I know Lila made a mistake also by getting on motorcycle with and alleged intoxicated person, but to just him go without punishment is insane.
Must be nice to get away with murder...oh wait its Carlsbad,,,capital of clueless law enforcement.

Our family has not let this go. Our family will never forget the wonderful person we have lost. John was a dear friend of ours and its not that we are letting it go because we aren't. The family has done all they can do to seek justice. Problem is, everything was turned over to the DA and they are in charge. If you haven't already heard the news, John was arrested Thursday. Why it didn't happen sooner... who knows? Alcohol was a factor. But they were just a tad but over the legal limit. The state is geting him for Vehicular Manslaughter. Believe me when I say this, NO LENGTH OF TIME BEHIND BARS HE MAY HAVE CAN BRING HER BACK. We have suffered losing a very special person in our family. No one knows why they got in the accident. That is something we will never know. We are glad John is okay and doing well. In the meantime, we miss her dearly and pray that god will handle what needs to take place.

Thank you for your opinion on bikers now here is mine on stupid ass shallow minded people like yourself...Grow the fuck up!! I will have you know my husband was the most caring man I have ever met. He had a heart of gold an would give the shirt off his back to help someone in need!! I suggest before you go off ranting on how stupid bikers are you spend some time with them and see that they are just like everyone else, we are a family and when one goes down everyone huddles around and cares for the loved ones that are mourning!!! So maybe you should take a minute and think the next time before you open that stupid mouth of yours

The problem is a bike cannot do all that much on a left turn in front of you, when you are too close or going too fast.
The person at fault is the truck driver for not yielding.
No a helmet would not have saved his life..he was not going to fast he was traveling the actual speed limit, the truck turned right in front of him and he did not have the time to even hit the brakes..I witnessed this all from our front porch, Daniel died from internal injuries so even if he would have been wearing his helmet he would not have survived
