I was driving down station road today after 5 pm and saw an accident scene. It looked like it was between a minvan and a motorcycle. I heard that the guy on the motorcycle died. Just wondering if anyone has any information on it. A former coworker of mine rides his motorcycle down station road at the same time of day, which is why i am so curious.

If anyone knows anything or has a link. please post it as i can not find anything on it yet.

Cyclist ended up under the van. Initial emergency reports where that he was dead. MedEvac was dispatched then it was decided it wasnt needed and he was alive.

Thats where my info is lost.

So many people fly up that road its rediculous. I think its 45mph and people do 65 easily. Most likely the van was barreling down the road and clipped him pulling out of the Qmart.

I do 3-4 miles over the limit always and im 30 years old ha!

David's at Lehigh Valley Hospital, has a broken jaw and severe head trauma. The driver of the van pulled out in front of him, being blinded by the sun and not seeing him. I ride as a passenger on a motorcyle and as a driver of a car have become very aware of motorcycles on the road. Today, alot of people are driving motorcycles to work because the price of gas has gone up so high. He was on his way home from work. May we all be more aware of them on the road and maybe not be in such a hurry, life is to short. May our prayers be with him and his family.

This area is not suitable for motorcycles, to damn much traffic.

I've witnessed 3 motorcycle accidents in this area in the past 2 weeks (one in the circle, one on 309 and one on Tollgate Road). Fortunately, in each instance the driver was able to get up and walk away after being cut off by a car / truck and no police or emergency vehicles were required.

Get off your cell phone, slow day and pay attention. Doing so could be the difference between life and death for you or someone else.

We will keep Dave and his family in our prayers.

Because some people dont have a clue how to use it. They freakin stop in the middle of it. Another day I saw someone going around it in the wrong direction. lol.
Oh yeah

Just think, they're going to put another one in just up the road in front of the Qmart to extend Ronald Reagan Drive!

I've seen people stop in the middle of it as well and there've been some pretty close calls there. I try to avoid the damn thing.
Oh yeah

It didn't happen at the circle it happened in front of the Q-mart entrance. I was never so disgusted with people as I was that day. I stood trying to get traffic to turn around as they obviously could not get out of that Q-mart exit. I can't tell you how many people tried to continue past giving me dirty looks only to have to turn around anyway. People are just rude and have no concern for others only their on time agenda's.

I looked all weekend for information as to whether Mr Rush made it and I am so glad to hear that he did. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family as he recovers, as well as with the woman who pulled out in front of him. The sun was glaring and very difficult to see, she was devastated as were her passengers.
