The following is not an accident that I witnessed. This was one that happened last
November and my daughter was at the scene.
The motorcyclist landed in front of her car. Fortunately, she was looking to her right
and heard the collision. She did not see it.
The driver of the car
, seen in the first two images turned in front of the motorcyclist
and he hit the car on the right side.
My daughter explained to me that for the first few minutes he seemed coherent and
stayed still. She said he looked in terrible condition and was bleeding heavily.
It took some time for the EMS to arrive and shortly before they got to the scene, he
began to talk with slurred speech and wanted to get up. She and others urged him
to be still. By the time the EMS reached the scene, he was unconcious. My daughter
knew he was not going to make it and he did not survive.
Later, members of the victims services group drove my daughter to the baby momma's
place and spent aboot three hours with her.
My daughter has been changed in profound ways since that accident and I feel terrible
that she had to go through that experience.
She keeps her head up and is glad that she was with that man in his dying moments.
The driver of the car was fined $115.00 for making an unsafe turn.
Some think that is a joke. There is more to the story though and that
will not be released.
My daughter's car is at the left side of the image, in the distance.
