  11. This is sad news. I have never seen this person ride in an irresponsible manor. I do not believe the media reports. I am more inclined to belive he was not seen. Thoughts and prayers to friends and family.

  12. Fucking media... i'm surised they didn't throw out the ubiquitous "speed was a factor" BS.

    good guy.

  14. My heart was heavy when I left my neighborhood last night & saw the road blocked off.

    Godspeed to the rider.

    There is not much room for (too much) speed in this area before you'd end up in the Puyallup River. I'd like to know which direction each person was headed.

    +1 This section was recently re-opened after months of construction that had the whole road ripped up. Not only does the lighting of the street suck at night but road striping sucks too. Impact on passenger side makes absolutely no sense for trying to pass. The first post saying the driver swerved & hit him makes a lot more sense to me.
  15. It was said by someone that was there, that the car was turning left and didn't see him, which resulted in an head on collision.
