Motorcyclist hurt in Route 30 drag race

Motorcyclist hurt in Route 30 drag race

Wednesday, May 12, 2004

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A motorcyclist was critically injured last night when he crashed during a race with a pickup truck in Westmoreland County.

State police said Jesse Springer, 18, of Laughlintown, was seen by at least two witnesses racing at a speed estimated at more than 80 mph on Route 30 in Unity Township. While traveling east, the cycle and the truck passed other motorists by traveling in a lane closed for construction, police said.

As the racers approached the Route 217 intersection, the cycle passed the truck and got in front of it in the right lane. But then it lost control, slid on its side and crashed into a guard rail.

Springer was flown to a Johnstown hospital.

Police are seeking a red, Chevy S-10 pickup modified for high performance. The truck has a decal or painting of flames on the side or hood.

Complicity? Simplexity? Its simply too complicated for me.

Maybe it has a Type R sticker? They add 10 hp.

I really hope you don't honestly believe that those folks in Northern West Virginia are any different than the folks in SW-PA.

He lives about a mile from me. I guess he is a squid to the tenth power. I havn't heard anything about this yet.

Some day I will shake this dark cloud hovering over me.

Well I guess he broke his jaw all his ribs and will probably lose his arm. Hopefully he will recover and ride more conservative from now on.
