The accident speaks for itself, the witness story was that she was a bit shaky about the route that she had little experience on.
People should understand the dangers of bikes, if you value your life then stay off the bikes.
It is irresponsible to ride mountain roads with 3 kids depending on you at home.

the letter seems to me like a bunch of BULL, only tell the good parts and leave out the bad. All that are close to her and the family know the real truth we got a report from the state trooper who reported to the scene of the accident. Yeah the letter seems to me lets make him look good...where is the part that he was going about 50 to 60 miles an hour and she impacted the guard rail and slung her back into the road that is how she ended up in the road... If she was nervous about riding he should of never taken her on the dragon not a good move on his behalf either.

i too ride a crouch rocket, and everyone knows that road is very dangerious. bikes are not dangerious, idiots who dont know what they are doing is... It's a shame it happened and i'm sorry for the family, but trying to make this jackass look good is fucken stupid. He never should have been up there, should have kept his ass off the curve and on a straight line, or even better off the damn road... my name is cory tucker and if anyone doesn't like what i have to say you can reach me at victoria's e-mail address

You know all these people are on here blaming Dave and callin him an inexperience rider and claiming that his "inexperience" caused this ACCIDENT! Let me say that I am the little sister of the girl (Jenn) who was on the other bike with Brandon Keck. Brandon is like my brother in law and he is straight up enough that he is not gonna get on here and try to paint a picture to make his friend look good. Trust me if Dave was in the wrong, Brandon Keck would be the first to say so. Friend or not. Nobody knows what really happened in this ACCIDENT!! And as far as the 50 or 60 mile a hour thing, I'm guessing that came from the truck that they admittedly passed!! I never met Dave or Alicia but I do know Brandon and I know that he would never ever put someones life in danger by going that fast in a curve. I truly feel so bad for Alicias family and especially her children. My son to lost his father when he was only 19 months old to an accident at work. Those children are gonne need the love and support of all of their family. Especially their fathers!!
That ACCIDENT affected alot of people and trust me I understand the family and freinds wantin to blame the closest person to this tragedy and that is Dave but let me tell you from experience that blaming someone for this ACCIDENT is not gonna help the healing. I am truly not trying to step on anyones toes are trying to kick up an argument. I'm simply speakin from experience that an accident is an accident. Yes it was a horrible way for her to go but God only promises you will be recieved into Heaven. He makes no promises of how you will get there. And just so you all know my husband was crushed to death in a machine at work. So like I said i speak from experience. Prayers to all affected by this tragedy.

The inexpeience that everyone seems to be referring to isn't necessarily Dave's. It was Alicia's inexperience of riding a bike. Having an inexperienced passenger is almost as bad as having an inexperienced driver. Dave should have never taken Alicia on that road and if he wanted to he should have never decided to pass a vehicle. The speed and the oncoming curve alone are enough to make any one nervous. Alicia could have gotten scared and jerked the opposite direction in which she needed to lean. That alone could have caused the accident. What everyone is trying to say is that is was a poor decision to even take her on that road and it turned out to be a deadly decision that he decided to speed on that road. And now because of his porr decision making there are 3 small, innocent, sweet, adorable children who don't have their Mom. For the one's who choose to get mad at Alicia's family for their anger, you all are in the wrong. Have you lost your child to a stupid decision? Do you have to look at her babies and see the pain in their eyes knowing they no longer have their momma? Do you hold them at night while they are crying for their momma who will never be able to hold them again? No. So just let the family feel the way they feel and go through the processes they need to to get over this. And if blaming Dave is what they want to do that's their buisness. Maybe in time God will show them why he took Alicia. Pray that the family gets healing and comfort in this time of loss. They need it. Don't judge them for being angry. They have a right to be.

I came across this thread accidentally , but it caught it my eye because I am a resident of Townsend, Tn. I am also a motorcycle rider. I have a hard time believing that someone uncomfortable riding on Hwy 28 would be traveling 50-60 mph on it.... even passing another vehicle. Unfortunately, wrecks occur frequently in this area, whether due to rider error or other circumstances. What caught my eye is the fact that someone removed the accident victim's helmet on the scene which should NEVER be done in a serious accident. CPR can be performed w/out mouth to mouth, which would be the only reason for removing a helmet. Unfortunately many people, even some EMT's are not aware that a helmet should not be removed at the scene of the accident. Who knows if this would have made a difference in this case, but education in proper procedure in first aid w/ riders can only help and not hinder the outcome.
