I was at the begining of the line of stopped traffic going northbound. Props have to go out to the emergency room nurse who happend to be on the scene. I heard her comunicating to the emergency team on the other end of the phone as she tended to the injured rider. Response time did seem slow; the downed rider was very lucky to have that guardian angel at the scene. From where I stood, she's the hero of this story. My prayers are with all involved. God bless!

I really wish The Patch would give a bit more details when a story is posted. I am not saying give names. But a better description of what happened would be better. I think I will be going to ExploreHarford.com from now on. They had the story written where you understood what happened.
