Cry Another left hander takes one.

Hi all, This is my first post but I have been trolling around for a while. My father Tomo Cummings was hit head on and killed this morning. We had been starting to plan a ride of the BRP in NC but it looks like that will have to wait now. He was heading to work down one of the busy side roads trying to stay off the highway. An 80 year old lady in an SUV turned left in front of him at an intersection and he hit her head on. He was thrown about 30 feet and was not conscious when bystanders arrived. They tried CPR and there was an ambulance right there and they worked him but he died before he got to the hospital. The local news did a short story and below is the link. I thought that you guys would understand and thats why I joined and posted here.
Thanks
Devin Cummings

Thanks everyone. The thing that burns me is just how silly an error it was. I mean come on he was coming right towards her and she didn't even see him. I know accidents happen but maybe (not just an age thing) she should not be driving. I hope that if I ever did anything like this someone would say the same about me. Ok sorry for the rant. I don't have a lot of riding buddies but would still like to do the BRP in NC. Thanks again.
Devin

Devin, forgive the generic-sounding sympathy for you and your family's loss. All of motorcycldom feels it. Please know that I'll be thinking of your father.
