    The motorcyclist in this accident is my husband. He is in critical, but stable condition. My family and I believe and have faith in the power of prayer. He will be healed in the mighty name of Jesus. #NoWeaponFormedAgainstHimShallProsper

    @ Williwonka. please let us know where there’s
    a “protected” road. I’d sure feel safer and maybe could
    make a phone call on a handheld device while checking
    my hair in rearview mirror course all of that would be after
    polishing-off 2 burgers and a chocolate milkshake !

    The one problem with a motorcycle is that there’s nothing between you and whatever you’re hitting.

    Hope the driver recovers.

    David for safer rides

    Hope the cyclist will be ok. Highway 97 is an unprotected road….the autobahn of north escambia county.
