When I went into work Monday there had just been a wreck right outside of our store. A motorcyclist hit a truck going about 60mph and died on impact. They had to tarp off the whole intersection so people wouldn’t have to see the body. The guys whole family came out and camped out at the gas station for a few hours while it all settled in. He was 27 with a wife and kids and two parents who will have to bury their own child. Corban’s sister went to school with him and is going to the funeral today.
Our video camera outside of the store caught it, so we had to replay it for the cops. Its a hard image to get back out of your head once its there.
Life is a very fragile, precious thing.
