Highside in Ford Heights?????

Does anyone know who it was that highsided in Ford Heights today at about 5:30 p.m. ??? He was on a cruiser and in a group. It looked like a charity run. I watched as it happened and stopped to help. Coming off northbound 394 on the ramp he got tossed about 30 feet throught the air and landed shoulder first into the pavement on Route 30. He was incapable of speaking as he probably had head trauma ((big bump on his temple) (if you're thinkin' no helmet you'd be right)). His right arm and shoulder were destroyed and it looke like he caved in some ribs. I offered help but his group was taking care of him so I left. I'll bet he lost it in the turn by givin' it too much throttle and drifted the rear wheel. I hope he lived.

there was a trike that ran off the driveway in jewl parking lot on 75th in woodridege yesterday around 7pmish. how i have no idea. its a trike. but it was sitting on its front two weels burried into the stop sign,

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.
