What, not even his feelings were hurt? Son of a [email protected]#!!! There has to be more to that story. He couldn't have just received a ticket for his heinous crime! I hope he rots in hell (to put it mildly). He was probably just running to a job and didn't want his cement to set. Amazing what people will do for money, and what the consequences are. That's just so wrong.

RIP fellow rider. Hope your babies will be ok!

I know this was actually several years ago, but in looking up things I saw this and it's nice to know there are people out there that cared. I am his younger brother. The man driving the truck seemed to have felt almost no remorse at all. He was charged with vehicular manslaughter and was put in solitary confinement for 3 days and that is all he got. Not enough if you ask me, he was my brother and my best friend, and I will miss him forever.
