"No citations or charges were filed as of Tuesday morning, Almonrode said."

I guess if you lose control of your car and kill someone it's okay.

The newspaper failed to mention that it was raining. If you read the full article you will notice the other victim consented to drug and alchol testing - which were both negative. This was truly an ACCIDENT.

I was a friend of charles he worked for me for over 2 years. I really pains me to see this happen because i also ride a bike and sparked the fire that led charles to buy his. I understand that no charges were filed but it looks like at the lease there should have been a failure to control a vehicle ticket.

I pulled up on this accident right after it happened. As a fellow motorcyclist, I pray that his family and friends have a clear mind. A terrible tragedy :(

I think of you everyday. I miss you sooooooo much. You were truly my very best friend and my misfit. LOL. I know that there are alot of people missing you today. Did you see me with the cupcake and candle? Happy Birthday! This is the first time that I found this site. The article made it real for me. Rest in peace. This was just another freak accident. At least Charles Lee went doing something he loved doing.
