It could happen to me if I am careless and don't pay attention. It was an accident but even accidents have fault. If I accidentally step on someone's toes it's because I was careless or not paying attention or just didn't care enough to watch where I was stepping. I never said she crashed into him intentionally but there were things that could have been done to avoid this horrible "accident". What if's are no good at this point but there should be justice for the family that lost their father, uncle, brother, grandfather and friend. No one seems to care about them. All I've seen or heard is sympathy for the person responsible for their suffering.
Red is stupid.

I have seen death and it never leaves your mind GOD bless them all.

Shannon, the one who accidently hit him is a nurse. She did CPR on him till the ambulance came. Also, another nurse stopped and helped. She works at the highschool.

You can judge all you want but that is the truth. It was a bad situation but she did try to do all she could. People amaze me!

I don't care if they get money or not although I'm sure they will from her insurance. But that's not her paying a price for her actions. She needs to face some kind of judicial justice. Negligent homicide, vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment. Something that she can't just run away from and blame on a dead man. She should have had a breathalizer if she didn't and she should have had blood and hair follicle testing to see if she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Even good people who go to church use mind altering substances. I just don't think the THP did it's due dilligence here.

I remember seeing the aftermath of a t bone collision on Bockman a few years ago. An elderly gentlemen had pulled out in front of an SUV which was obviously by the crash damage traveling far faster than the speed limit. I do not remember any charges being placed. You can still frequently see the driver of that SUV on Bockman traveling far beyond the speed limit.

Then you should file a formal complaint at the office in Cookeville, otherwise let it rest....

I'd still fuss about her lack of caution when approaching a bicycle without slowing down and trying to pass in a no passing zone.

I know you think you're the most intelligent being in existance but sometimes things happen by accident.Someone walks in the flow of traffic for example.Someone rides a bi cycle on a curvy road and gets struck.Accidents happen.

Oh see me and my husband's sex life is perfect. How's your sex life with your wife and your girlfriend? See when you grow a pair and mature a little you realize life isn't about sex. But being the little boy you are I don't expect you to grasp that.

So youre saying youve never passed in a no passiong zone? Well you just lied if you did. The whole community had about hit this guy on the bike several times. The trooper was told that. It would have been safer to stay off the roads with a bike. Common sense tells me this where I live. She was not at fault. But she will see this over and over in her mind every day for the rest of her life. And if youre so determined to ruin her life more over an accident, then by all means do what you feel like you need to do. But I sure hope you are never in her position in some form or another. If so I hope you get all the meaness you give out right back at you plus ten times worse. May God help you. You are a very mean and spiteful person. Im soooo glad I do not know who you are. I would be ashamed to know you as this kind of person.

If I had caused this accident I would expect to be charged. What about the lives of the family that lost their dad and grandpa? She will eventually recover from causing the death of a man who has every legal right to be on the road. I've not been mean I don't think just honest. What if this were your friend that died? Would you let it go? And spite is me doing something malicious. Which would be like me going to the news stations or THP and pushing the issue farther than ranting and venting a Topix. There are so many instances of POV operators thinking they have the right of way over bicycles, tractors, motorcycles and other POV's even. Just think we should all slow down a little and give others the right to the road they also deserve. Thanks for praying for me tho I can use all the prayers anyone is willing to give:)

You would not be expecting to be charged. You would be hoping and praying you didnt. If it was my family who was hit, sure I'd be hurt. But I also think I would have said....listen here.....its not safe to ride on the road. I dont care if bikes have the same rights as cars, its just not good sense to go up against them. Especially on bad curvy roads. Bike routes can be found everywhere, use those. You probably go to church with Shannon every time the door is open. And she probably thinks youre a good person too. If you think going over the troopers heads to the paper or news is what needs to be done...by all means go ahead. But when you see it will go no farther then you will have to stop. Or will you? Honestly I think you just want to stir crap up because you have no life but whatever floats ya boat. Good Day, I am through with this convo, as I have proven my point. Thank you!
