i just saw this on the news. they showed the guys mangled bike and helmet. and they did the piece after i just told my wife that if there is a break in the weather i hoped to go for a ride. not good timing. she just looked at me likeGeekRoadie said:More sad news. Stay safe out there.
Assuming that there were no drugs/alcohol involved, the poor schmuck who hit him probably had a mental lapse...we all have made them while driving (admit it). Most of us have been lucky, saved by other defensive drivers or other fortunate circumstances. This driver was not as lucky, and the riders' luck was worse that day. The driver clearly freaked out...he took off and ditched his van about a mile away, and disappeared on foot.dlbcx said:The guy who hit the riders, turned himself in on Friday. Hopefully, the system will prosecute him to the full degree but in reality, he probably get a short sentence with probation.
