    I dont know what this guys deal was, but sad to hear. I have a question for the motorcyclists in general. Biking looks like great fun, but how can you put that much trust in regular traffic around you. I mean sitting at a red light must be terrifying. Getting rear ended by a car doing 50 mph would wreck anybodys day. I know this has little to do with the story…Just thought id throw it out there.

      Sounds like being drunk, running a red light and speeding will also make for a bad day. Too bad, it could have been prevented.

    As you will notice the comment about alcohol being detected has been removed. There was no alcohol in his system. Please keep his family and his young daughter in your thoughts and prayers. I am his daughter’s aunt. We will all miss him. Omied, I will help to ensure that your little girl always knows just how much Daddy loves her. RIP.

    I’m sorry but to clarify for all u, my brother was drinking. His B.A.C. That night was .29! He was drunk. And he hadn’t had a drink since mid night, I spoke to em at 12.07am! He was drunk! Were any of u there to say he ran a red light? Lights turn yellow n ppl go through em. Shut up and quit disrespecting my brother. He is gone. He was a hard worker n man of his word! And a very good father.
