Sad for all.

I always wear a helmet because one saved my life. Think, people.

stangkh: the web site you reference discusses riding bicycles, not motorcycles. Research in MOTORCYCLEs shows riding without a helmet leads to more head injuries. Other studies have shown an increase motorcycle deaths after states eliminate or weaken mandatory helmet requirements.

Helmets should be a person's choice and most that ride know they don't help with any serious accident. ***********cyclehelmets****/1012.html

Articles every where will tell you that.

I was shocked when I read about the accident. Dr. Spindler would never do harm to any living creature. I am sure this was a tragic accident. Prayers to both families.

StoneCold: I understand what you are saying but if he did not see the biker, it was a tragic accident. What you are describing is a purposeful action, ie not yielding or giving way. I don’t think that would have been the case with Spindler. I rode motorcycles a long time ago and still have the endorsement on my DL. I always assumed that the other vehicles did not see me so better safe then sorry. I am more sensitive to keeping an eye out for riders…but when there is a lot of traffic, they sometimes just get lost in all the other clutter of cars. Over the years, I inadvertently pulled out in front of a MC simple because I did not see him until the last minute. Day running lights are very helpful.

Condolences to the Beebe family. Dr. Spindler is a wonderful man. I am sure it will be a long time before anyone recovers from this tragedy.

I live on County House Lane and travel this road in question often. Visibility is terrible at the intersections around the Walmart area. If there are large trucks or SVU in the turning lane you do not have a clear view of the oncoming traffic. I often go thru Lowes parking lot so that I can avoid a left hand turn on to County House Lane for this reason.

Fact of the helmet matter is when your head takes a sudden impact your brain bounces off the skull hard enough to kill you only thing a helmet does is keep it from being a bloody mess. Just as many people die in states with helmet laws.

A true friend and all around great guy to all who knew him. He was always willing to go that extra mile to help someone out if he knew them or not. I will miss you Will. I hope the best for your family and the other party involved. I will never forget you my friend.

My sympathies to both families. I know both parties and they are both top-notch men. Ohio should change the no helmet law because bikers have no real protection around them. Also, because motorcycles are smaller and narrower, they sometimes disappear behind the vehicles they are following. I agree with Stone Cold that people should give bikes the rights of way they are entitled to. However, I would say the same thing to all drivers--yield when you do not have the right of way. And if you don't know that you don't have the right of way, then you shouldn't be driving.

Word cannot describe the loss I know people are feeling over this young man's passing. Thoughts and prayers to all of them, and to Doctor Spindler as well. I hope that everyone will heal as quickly possible from these horrible events.

Yes I will agree that wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle is a good idea, BUT .........

A better idea would be for drivers of vehicles to START yielding the right-of-way to motorcycles and stop turning or pulling out in front of them!

I feel sorry for all involved in this accident, but the fact remains that if the truck had NOT turned IN FRONT OF THE motorcycle this young man would still be alive!

Helmet or no helmet!

So sorry for everyone involved. Lost a good friend years ago in a similar accident, she also was not wearing a helmet. Understand they are a pain to wear but so essential for exactly this reason.

This is such a terrible accident.Even if the motorcycle tried to stop,the buckle in the road at the entrance of that intersection would have prevented it,as it lifts vehicles clear off the road.I saw the grief in Dr Daves face.Prayers to all involved.
