the appeal of living and working in Harford county is the back roads, the spacious land that once was farmland. Today there are lots of people living and driving here, and the roads and dangers are greater just by shear volume....Everyone would be wise to just take it easy...in traffic, especially at intersections, just slow down and be patient.....years ago when i first learned to drive i always slowed at intersections...and even hills...why? there were farm wagons hauling hay, there were 'cattle crossings'...yes, roads would be used by dairymen to allow their cattle to cross from one field to another...those roads are still here today...maybe not the cattle, sometimes a hay wagon...but this is Harford county...and i love living here...please anyone reading this...just take it easy...usually there is no one to blame but your self when something happens on the roads.

It's nice to be able to use this website and make comments but when someone loses their life. Why would you throw it in the family's face...why rub it in? The young man made a mistake and has paid the ultimate price. So those who feel the need to make RUDE comments ...please... Keep those comments to yourself !

Does anyone know the details of this accident? Did the dump truck driver pull out illegally in front of the bike? Maybe it was not the fault of the biker. Maybe he never had a chance.
