A witness who was mowing his lawn saw the whole thing. He told investigators, “it looked like he just blew the turn.” Exactly what he meant by that, I couldn’t say with certainty, but I think we all get the gist. As luck would have it, the witness turned out to be an Eagle Scout with a merit badge in First Aid, so after calling 911 he went to attend to the fallen rider. Turned out there wasn’t much he could do for him, and as he told our local fish-wrapper, “The guy was alive when I got to him, but he was a real mess. All he had on were shorts and a tank top, so he was scraped up pretty good and bleeding like crazy, but he seemed to breathing okay.” EMTs and a chopper were on the scene within minutes, but the rider died before they could get him to the hospital.
