Adv Rider "Classic" killed in hit and run.

I helped a young man repair his bike about a week ago while coming down to florida to visist the keys. I just got on IM from his Mom that he's in St. Marys hospital, his parents are flying in from Ohio, nurse said hes hurt real bad.

Any riders down that way please contact me if you can help.

I spoke with a family member alittle while ago, Mom and Dad have made it down there, sounds as theres little hope, massive head injurys

The police have a lead on a white truck is all I know so far.

He was ATGATT but sometimes it's not enough.

I'm really bummed, he's my kids age, and such a wonderful young man, Did not know him long but he's left a great impression on me.

I feel like I've lost one of My children. DAMM !

Just talked to his sister, he was hit from behind and carried 200 feet before falling under the wheel i think. Back tire flat and rim bent. Police followed somekind of fluid trail to a trailer park where a white dodge truck was parked in away to hide the damage to its front end.

Family is now making the disicion to unhook life support.

I'm so mad I could rip that persons head off with my bare hands and shit down their neck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Frickin' Hell. This sucks, big time. Too bad there's so little hope for him.

Sorry to hear about this. I've met some great people on this forum and it sucks to see someone die due to no fault of their own. I wish his family the best.

Really sorry to hear about this. What can we do to help out? I'm in Boynton Beach but I'm at the VA hospital in Riviera Beach, very close to St Mary's Hospital... about 10-15 minutes away, twice a week.

My Condolences to his Family.
