Concerned Resident....please refrain from posting negative comments about this young man. Thank god he didn't hurt anyone else. He made a big mistake that cost him the most valuable thing you can lose, his life. Since the night I witnessed this accident I have had nothing, but pure concern for his family. His poor mother and father lost their son a few blocks from their home. Everyday when they drive off they will be reminded of the horrific way they lost their son. Regardless of what happened or how it happened there was a young life lost that night, don't be a hypocrite and say that you have never did anything dangerous that risked your life or the life of others. This was a horrific accident.

Hello,

My husband and I have rode motorcycles for many many years.

I don't know what happened, all I know is that we passed this accident coming home from church on Saturday night. I couldn't help buy cry for the man i saw lying on the ground.

I hate to see any accident and I say a prayer for those involved. But I espically hate seeing a motorcycle accident. It's very tragic thing when someone dies.

We have lost friends from motorcycle accidents and it isn't easy on anyone involved.

Both bikers and drivers need to be more aware of what they are doing behind the wheel of a car and on a bike. This isn't a toy folks.

Hang up your cell phones; put down your ipods, stop texting.
Slow down, watch out for each other!!!

Please we don't need any more people dying because of distractions.

My prayers go out to everyone involved.

God bless you all and please be safe.

Right or wrong what happened was a tragedy, especially to someone so young. My prayers go out to this young man, his family and all the other individuals that were involved in the accident.

Everyone makes mistakes none of us here on earth walk on water...shame on the people who feel the need to cast judgement on this young man...my thoughts and prayers go out to his parents and his family...having felt the pain and hurt of losing a child I know the hell you as his parents are going through. May the Lord help you through this life changing ordeal..Take peace in knowing he is an Angel now with the Lord and may this give you strength to go on.

I did witness the scene also and worse my child walks that street to and from school daily. So I have a right to be negative about this when my family is out there with drivers like that.

First off I want to say all you guys are judging and putting assumptions out there like you know what happened....Yes he wasn't wearing a helmet but he was cut off by another driver!!! That is why he lost control and smashed. You guys all act like you are perfect drivers and never been cutoff before. Why don't you save your ignorant comments for someone else and let us (Hector's family and friends) grieve in privacy. I wish this one of your family members and people can give you the ignorance like you are giving us. Family and friends are coming on here reading this and they shouldn't have to read this. If you witnessed this accident well good for you!!! Let this young man rest in peace and respect his family and stop the rude comments. No matter what you say or what you do he is gone and now let us heal. Keep your rude comments to yourself and be glad you have another day to live because this poor boy doesn't!! Regardless of how he died or anything else just stop because we know he is gone..Rest in Peace Hector! You are with the angels now.

The only people I feel sorry for is the one the family is blaming for this and the people who had to witness it.
ur ignorant and a young man is dead. a good kid, not some trouble maker, someones child, someones brother. did u clock him doing 90mph? i dont think so. too bad it wasnt u

My heart goes out to the friends & family of Hector.
The fact is that many people have forgotten what their turn signals are for. I drive that stretch of 80th daily & see many cars randomly changing lanes without signalling. That, combined with the 45 mile an hour speed limit from 159th to 167th, makes that stretch dangerous. If you have ever walked along that sidewalk, it's scary-like walking an expressway. Kids use that sidewalk to get to school. And Hector isn't the first casualty in that area. Why isn't there a lower limit? It's a residential area!

I very much agree with you regarding people not giving a turn signal; that habit is rampant among drivers. I also agree regarding the speed limit on 80th Avenue, way too high. Many drivers do not respect the reduced speed limits posted on school days when school children are present; I've seen it many times. I think that a stop sign should be placed on that location to enfore slower speeds.

I read the article and I don't know where you get your information that he was driving 90 mph from. Please post a link. While there are some unsafe motorcylce drivers, the majority are safe drivers. The greatest danger to motocycle drivers are reckless car drivers. When a motorcycle is present, extra caution must be exercised by all car divers. A person on a motorcyle is extremely vulnerable.

My prayers go out to the family. To the person who wrote the negative comments, you have no heart. How dare you make those assumptions about that poor kid. What would u do if that was your child that Was killed? How would you feel if some ignorant ass posted horrible comments about your child right after they passed away? Would you like it, hearing bullshit from a stranger while you are grieving the loss of your child? You should have some sympathy for his parents and family. You also should apologize, but u probably won't since you have no soul.
