    Will the female driver be charged with vehicular homicide at the very least? It’s a shame how reckless people drive at the risk of innocent people’s lives. Sending prayers for the friends and family of the deceased…

    Larry was an amazing guy. This accident was caused bc a stupid lady failed to yield. Her carelessness took someone away from his son, his friends, and his family. He was someone that when everything was dark in the world. He was the light. Heaven gained an amazing angel. RiP Larry. I will miss you and your hugs so so much

    @ Jellybean
    I just had cataract surgery on one eye and will have it done on the second eye for the same reason you stated .If you haven ‘t had your eyes examined lately please do so it could save you from having a terrible accident when driving at night.All I was seeing at night driving was one big light and halos. .

    Although I didn’t know him, friends did and said he was an amazing, caring person. We all need to really pay attention when driving. Riders on bikes haven’t got the protection we do in cars for that second chance. Rest in peace sir.

    I try to be super alert of traffic but one thing I do notice (with my olde eyes) is the perspective of vehicle lights; some small, which could equate to distance, some large, closer or bigger. Kinda, can’t see the tree for the forest…. What I definitely noticed one day was the motorcycle with a pair of purple lights on each side of his crash bars….
    I mourn for the deceased….
