This sux...

I haven't had to deal w/ something like this for quite some time.... One of my bro's from my ship got into a horrible bike accident about 3:30 am on Sat. He was suppose to be on his way home, but never showed. His wife called me and a few others looking for him, but we couldn't find him. We finally got a phone call around 1 pm that he was in the hospital. Turns out, he was on his bike heading down 64 highway about to go into the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel. He was supposedly going over 100, when we didn't negotiate the turn into the tunnel. We went off the bridge, into the water as his bike went down into the tunnel. We was supposedly in the water for around 10min when some fellow sailors from the USS Carl Vinson came to his rescue. They helped resuscitate him till emergency crews showed up. Right now he's fighting for his life w/ a broken back, both his hands shattered, and his right knee nearly disintegrated. The Doc's are pretty sure that IF he pulls through he will almost def not walk again. What's effecting him so much, is that he inhaled all that salt water and bacteria that's in the Chesapeake Bay. Alcohol was a factor, and it pisses me off so much. I just want to wake him up and slap him a couple times, and ask him what the F*ck he was doing/thinking! His wife is beside herself, pregnant, and has a 6 yr old daughter. His family doesn't have the money to get down here right away, so several of us have thrown in money to get them a flight down here. I guess part of me has been waiting for someone in our group to get into an accident, but I really never thought it would have been like this. I figured they'd lay one down, maybe get some road rash/ a broken bone or two, and that would be about it. THIS SUX!!!! He's like my little brother!!!!

Here's a link to the local newspaper about the incident.

Be prepared for everyone to get all spooled up about motorcycles again....anytime an accident happens here, everyone thinks the bike riders need more intervention and training. Pisses me off sometimes. I hope he comes thru it all, so you can beat him about the head and shoulders for riding a motorcycle while intoxicated!!!!!!

I'll pray for him, bro....

Thanx for the kind words. Beides the children factor his wife JUST moved down here a couple months ago, and they haven't even been married a whole year yet. I did get a phone call not too long ago, and he seams to have made a little improvement over night. His heart rate is improving on it's own, and they might able to pull a tube or two off of him by the end of the day if his progress keeps up. Time will tell. Thanx again for your kind words and prayors.

Wow man that def sucks about the crash. But NEVER say NEVER! Many friends of mine have been told, you'll never walk-you'll never ride again,ect.ect. Well, they proved them wrong and I pray your friend is one of those people. And about the booze and bikes, bad combo anytime.
Good luck to he and his family, I'll say a prayer for them.

Thanx again for the kind words and prayers. A little update: He's still listed as critical, but he has been taken off the 3 diff Blood pressure meds. Las t night we had a little scare in that his blood pressure dropped a little bit, but he brought it back on his own. We're trying to organize a bike ride fundraiser either this weekend or next. His parents finally got here last eve. It's tuff to see him like this, but we're trying to be as positive as possible (it's about all we can do, huh?). Now my wife, who's back in KC, wants me to sell my bike. She said I could get another one when I come home next year. I don't think she's being fair, but I told her we would talk more about it... We'll see what comes of it.
