Member/Rider down..Alex passed on...

Post by 01YZF6 on Sun Aug 05, 2012 1:20 pm

EthioKnight is not doing well. He is in USA Hospital on Ventilation, with a Severe Skull Fracture and head trauma.

This is from the http://www.alabamasportbike.com website, where he was a frequent poster...

Rider Down in Mobile
Just came on here to ask for prayers/good thoughts/happy thoughts for EthioKnight who went down last night. I wasn't there however got word that he was in critical condition at approximately 0400 this morning and on ventilation.
Facts are sketchy at best but from what I gathered talking to multiple people at the hospital he was hit in the 'rear' and thrown quite a distance into an adjacent parking lot. This was a hit and run I'm just hoping his helmet cam caught something useful so the driver who hit him can be found.
If not I'll update when more is known.

EthioKnight not doing so good
From what I was told he was out riding like he typically does on Saturday nights. He was hit from behind and flung off of his bike. The car that hit him drove off and he is now at USA hospital in serious condition in the ICU. His sister said on Facebook his head is fractured and on a ventalator. Prayers be with him when I get home from drill I will stop by and see him.

Not seeing anything on any news sites either. Unfortunately the news around HERE, they usually only report it if someone passes away. Sorry &*%$.

Mother F@#$er! People suck! The dumb bastard who hit him was probably wasted. Prayers will be said. 01YZF6 thanks for posting this and letting everyone know.

Prayers sent. I hate to hear this. Sad

My wife's car was totaled in broad daylight. She was sitting at a redlight & boom. If she was on her bike, then she would not be alive.

since I do not live anywhere near there, I am relying on other forums posting regarding this.

Went by the hospital today to visit alex, he is still in serious/critical condition and unresponsive.
but thats all they can tell me since I am not family. I have no way of contacting the family but I will try to find out.
