Rider Down in Haines City

My wife just called me from visiting her dad in Haines City... said she was coming around the last corner on Old Polk City Road and there was an officer with crime scene tape up all around. She took a detour down a side road, and saw a green sportbike had hit a car. The bike was destroyed, and the car was also in terrible shape. The crime scene tape obviously says bad news.

Well, she passed by the same spot on the way home... nothing has changed. The crime scene tape is still there, the car is a totaled mess, and there is bike wreckage for 200 feet. The mess is so bad she says she can't even tell which direction the vehicles were going. She says it was definitely a green sportbike, and it looked newer.

Whoever you are, we're praying for you...
