A perfect late summer day. Not a cloud in the sky, very light breeze from the north. Three P.M. He was riding his bike, (bicycle) home from work. He was about 6 miles from his driveway. Out in the country, wide, smooth 2 lane straight road.

She was on her way home from grocery shopping. While she was driving, she decided to change the CD she was listening to. As she was reaching for a new CD, she swerved slightly and ran him down from behind going 55 mph.

He was a friend and fellow bike club member. We rode together often. Two kids, a girl 15 and a boy 10. A wife. He's dead. He was 42.

This happened in Sept., '05. She finally came to justice. She was found guilty in court........Her penalty?




A $150 FINE!Somethings are just not right. Not right at all. :(

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. That's absolutley terrible. A $150 fine seems like a slap in the face to that mans family and friends.

A local teacher got ran down by a driver on a suspended licence . The driver is to get 2-5 years for the incident. Another guy ran down a doctor and pharmist,killing the doctor. Last thing I heard there were no charges filed. Apparently the driver had a medical condition which later was found out to be alcohol.
