Unhappy Rider Down

It's hard for me to type this right now, but I think it will help me come to terms with this trajedy. My younger brother was killed last night in fayetteville NC when a 17year old kid turned in front of him on his 250. He never made it to the hospital.

He was 19 years old and had just started his career in the army as a paratrooper. He was supposed to be coming down this next week for the holiday. Please be careful out there and remember that cagers are out there trying to kill you. ATGATT doesn't always save you.
