    My boyfriend and I were the first at the scene… He called 911 and stayed on the phone with them while others arrived… They kept doing CPR as instructed by 911… Taylor was in very bad shape… We left when the fire trucks and EMT arrived to make room for life flight to land… I prayed for her then and continue to…

    I’ve been riding for 53 years and had helmets save my life 4 times.
    I can’t ride without one. Just like I can’t drive without a seatbelt.
    I just don’t feel that lucky. I hope she recovers well.

    I’m so sad for the young lady and I pray she comes through this tragedy. Bless her heart and soul.
