IT WASN'T HIM!
Apparently he slept in and was home in bed, safe and sound when it happened. I hate that anyone was killed or injured, but I cannot imagine how devastated we would have been to lose Wayne. He has been my friend for nearly 30 years, and my SO's friend for nearly that long. We had a case of puppy love in high school.
I still have not been able to find out who was killed and injured, we still may have friends involved. We were both born and raised in that area, and rode those roads for many years. One man is confirmed dead, one woman lost a leg, and the number reported of serious injuries is as high as 20.
A woman, drunk, ran a stop sign in front of about 70 motorcycles, and as many as 40 were involved in the crash. She was not injured, nor was the toddler in the back seat. She had better just stay in jail, she is probably safer. About the only good thing is that the law in that county is VERY tough on drunk drivers, so she will be punished properly, or as properly as murderer can be. This makes me so angry! How could anyone not see or hear 70 MOTORCYCLES?!
