A sad passing

Post by GreenDragon » Sat Aug 06, 2011 1:25 pm

Ed Packer of Cincinnati,on his way to Sturgis, last night, was killed when a truck turned left in front of him. Ed did not even have time to hit the brakes.
Prayers for his family.

May he rest in peace, and may his family get past this difficult chapter in their lives with renewed strength, hope and courage. They have my sincerest sympathy, it is not a pleasant death, much less so if they were not there to see it and have no way to know if he suffered and for how long.
Keep it rubber side down and shiny side up and all will be well with the world!

This stuff hits home every time I read something like it. I have a good friend who I suspect may have been in that group heading to Sturgis. :( My thoughts are with Ed's family.

I'll have a good thought for him...

This type of tragedy hits home for all of us here on the site.

We gotta do a better job of making the driving public more aware of their responsibilities when they get behind the wheel.

If the truck driver took another look before turning, this may have been avoided.

It's in our best interests as riders, to help drivers better understand the risks that come when sharing the road with a motorcycle -- maybe slow down a bit, give some cushion and look twice before making a turn. It's simple stuff, but, it saves lives.
