Thank you Brother Bri for respecting that Motorcycles have a right to be there. Robert is not an idiot about riding his motorcycle. He will not ride it again however. Jennifer Fishback Haworth, sister of the motorcyclist in ICU currently.

I don't know what happened, but I have an opinion about it anyway. I drive a motorcycle and sometimes use lane sharing to get through traffic jams, especially coming over 17 into Santa Cruz. It works really well. The last time I drove out to the beach, on July 4, I went through a huge traffic jam coming into town in a few minutes. A lot of car drivers resent you for that, and they try to block you from passing them. Sometimes a driver will make a quick lane change right in front of you as you are coming down the "lane" between cars. Sometimes they just didn't see you, but it really seems like some people are trying to get you to crash, or are saying "See, maybe lane sharing is too dangerous after all". It seems like this crash was probably caused by someone in a pickup changing lanes right in front of the motorcycle driver. Maybe the motorcyclist was going too fast, a lot of them do (I don't).
Jim, the accident was ruled not my brothers fault and he is the motorcyclist. The sentinel is famous for screwing up the facts. Please read my comment at the bottom.thanks Jennifer Fishback Haworth

Jennifer, I suggest you read this. While I am not saying the Sentinel is always right, in this case they were reporting what the police had said.

Robert Fishback was not lane splitting when the accident occurred. THIS IS MY BROTHER. He was fully in his lane and the accident has been ruled not his fault. This was not what caused the accident. He is currently stable in ICU and The Sentinel has been informed that my brother was not at fault. He is a well respected member of Boulder Creek and I want you all to know the truth. Jennifer Fishback Haworth.
We, the family would appreciate prayers and positive thinking for ROBERT.. He is a professional photographer and we do not know what the final prognosis will be. THANK YOU
This is just another example of the "Sentinel" publishing incorrect information and as in the past cases, they will not publish the truth when all is finished. I have written in the past about this subject. Folks...stop believing what you read in this newspaper, especially when it concerns motorcycle accidents/incidents. Look at the amount of posts that falsely accused the victim or are just plain hateful.

I pray for your Brother and hope to meet him someday. God bless you and your family.

For those who want me to understand getting facts straight I totally understand error. I just want it known that he was not what caused the accident. He was moved today by helicoptor to the valley. He is well known and loved and we are just praying and holding on to the support we have with family and friends. Robert is a very talented photographer and has always had a positive way of judging things in life. Please just keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Family support will be here soon to help and it comes from New York and Washington and this has been very hard, just as it would be for any family or those you love to suffer. We do not know what his future holds. His birthday was August 1st and while I was saddened by the words Happy Birthday, I looked at it how Robert would. HE IS STILL WITH US> and we are so thank ful for that much alone. Jennifer Fishback Haworth of Boulder Creek, California.

Jarbee is correct. The facts were not originally correct and the story was updated. Ms Squires only reported what she was told and that is how the media works and sucks at the facts.
Robert is currently stable and was air lifted Saturday to the valley from Santa Cruz. If you do not understand this area, it is a small community that cares about the people here. Robert is critically injured and although stable, the damage is nothing to take lightly. He was not at fault. The Santa Cruz Police department has been wonderful to me and worked with me on all of this and my thanks is extended to them and Dominican Hospital.

Unfortunately, I have to retract what I said about my brother not being an idiot. He has anklo spondilitis and should not have been on a motorcycle. He has also turned into somewhat of a monster and is threatening the happiness of others who helped him. For all we did, we have been repaid with his scorn and lies..

I originally set out to support a family member in need and little did I know that he would become a monster. Unfortunately, after doing everything for this person, he sought to destroy some of us close to him, and this resulted in ending any contact with him, whatsoever. Robert Fishback apparently suffered mental damage along with his accident and has turned into a local snitch. So, be careful what you tell those you trust in life. Some of us, try to live decent lives and are fooled into trusting relatives we once loved. Robert Fishback has become self serving and is only out to get others at this point. It is not our fault, he suffered an accident and lost his home. We are not responsible and claim no ties to this person ever again.

It is sad that Robert lost everything, his home in boulder creek, all of his equiptment, all of his personal belongings....while he was in the hositpital his home was ravaged his Hot tub removed and sold.....even the wood stove from his home. This shows the level of care that he was getting from " family" he helped when they needed it...and how he was repaid. Karma it will all come back to you.
I am sure you will insist you did nothing wrong but in your heart you know the truth.
Such is the life of a kept soul.

I just came across this. If you have never lived with an inidividual dramatically changed by PTSD and inability to live as he chose prior to the accident, you cannot understand. The family not only did everything and moved him to his sister's farm, they were told to Butt out, when Robert decided he did not like what happened. The neighbors ravaged the house on Orchard St. NOT the Family. Robert broke his family's hearts and continues to do so. The Wizard is an idiot. His family was not to blame for lack of care taken by the realtors Robert employed or neighbors Robert chose to trust over family. In some cases, the injured does more damage than those who try to help.Get your facts straight and print the truth. Our brother willfully destroyed his own family, by his own choices and his sister back east is still suffering as he chooses to demand and demand and demand. His other sister, lost a brother and his father lost a son because Robert is steadfast in his own delusions and lies. His health is declining,yet his sister is paying to keep him comfortable, out of pocket and with time. His money from government is very little. Whomever the Wizard is..Is a fool..

Oh and By the Way, nearly everything he owns was picked up and transported back east and is in the one sister's Barn and house, including all his animals and his truck. He did not lose anything but what he chose to trash.
