According to friends and family members, this poor guy on the bike had the soles of his shoes rubbed off in trying to stop this accident. How awful to see your demise coming and know that you cannot stop it. My prayers to the family and friends of this man who was deeply loved.

That was my boyfriends dad, nd the guy who said his friend was the dump truck driver needs to go look at the site there was plenty of room for that truck to go even more off the road then he should i hope he is grieving, because he claimed a father of 6 grandfather of 8 and a husband.

I am sorry for the loss of your boyfriends father. The guy in the dumptruck is a very good friend of mine and he is grieving. He did all he could do in the short time he had to do it. The blame of the crash is not his, however, he has to live with it. You may be upset, but you do not have the right to say he claimed a life. The fact is he was in his lane and swerved to the right to try to avoid the collision. He also called 911 immediately. It is through no doing of his that the man died. The motorcycle crossed the center line and hit the truck, that is the fact!
