    Anyone with information on the motorcyclist would be appreciated…my husband and I are both nurses and were among the few first responders to the accident…I wish him and his family a safe healthy recovery.

    The motorcyclist is my husband and I’m happy to report that he is alive and doing great! He’s currently in rehab and will hopefully be coming home sometime this week. We would both love to talk to you and tell you thank you in person if you have the time… :)
