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. :cursin:

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.
