Motorcycle Crash Kills Two Young Men in Ruskin

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The families of a 22-year-old and 18-year-oldare mourning the death of their loved ones who were killed in a motorcycle crash last night.

According to Tampabay.com, the motorcycle driver and his passenger were driving a Suzuki motorcycle eastbound along College Avenue in Ruskin when a Jeep Cherokee turned left off of Eighth Street into the motorcycle’s path. As a result, the motorcycle crashed into the Jeep.

Both occupants of the motorcycle were taken to South Bay Hospital where they died from their injuries.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families. To lose such young family members must be devastating. The sadness and loss will likely stay with the families forever.

Sadly, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries and death. With the weather getting nicer, there will be more motorcycles on the road. Drivers, watch out for them! When turning left, always, always, always look left, then right, and then left again before making your turn. It could save a life!

  2. I am truly saddened for your friends’ loss. My bringing the crash to the attention of others was not an advertisement, but a reminder for all to be careful on the road.
    I am not attempting to capitalize on this tragic accident, but I am trying to prevent another family and their friends from suffering like you and your friends are right now.
    My blog is report the news as printed in the newspaper and other sources and to help educate the public how lives can be forever chamged in seconds.
    Although I completely disagree with your assessment of my intentions, as a courtesy to you and the families, I will edit the blog.

  3. Hello,
    I am a friend of the families that you put on this recent blog. I am wondering if you got permission to use their names as an advertisement? We JUST buried Ryan this afternoon and we are very upset to see that an attorney is using this tragedy for product placement.
    As a friend of the family, I would ask that you remove their names. I do not think it is proper for you to capitalize on this tragedy for the benefit of your services.
    I will be contacting the family with a link to this blog to let them know that an attorney is capitalizing on the death of their son for the benefit of his firms employment.
    I would ask that you be decent about this and kindly remove the names of the boys. They aren’t even in the ground a full day yet and we are already finding this kind of thing. I find it disconcerting and flat out rude. Couple all of this with the fact that the driver who hit them is a friend of the family and now you have pain compounded a million times worse than it should ever be.
    Please do the right thing and remove their names from this blog. And especially do not attach this tragedy to any advertisement for your firm without getting the families permission.
    Thank you,
    Toni Wilson and Debbie Dykes
    Long time friends of the family
