We will proceed to Christian Heritage Church, 2810 Shearer Rd., and form a flag line at 10:10 a.m. until the service begins at 11:00 a.m. Following the service, we will escort them to Culley's Funeral Home, Timberlane Rd., for burial. At Culleys we will form a flag line.
RC will be driving the support truck with extra flags. Chief Davis stood for us, we should all stand for him.

Whether or not the driver that killed the motorcyclist was driving while using a cell phone is an issue. Politically popular or not.
But then wait til you child not old enough to drive gets taken out by a cell phone impaired driver. Bet you will be the first to yell the loudest.

how does she turn left from eastbound into him Southbound...
That area of Thomasville Road is 3 lanes each side N & S bound, with median. She had to pull straight (east) across 3 lanes and then turn left/north.
Much less the Triumph was "in the outside" (right) lane, so this was a clear driving-blind (or cell-impaired ? when will that become a box to check on an accident report like alcohol./ seat belt ??) ROW negligent-violation.
