I experienced a single-vehicle accident Oct. 21 at about 5:30 p.m. while riding my motorcycle on Parker Avenue near Hurst Way.
Although I was not very seriously injured I was somewhat dazed, out of sorts and in pain. Two passersby stopped to render assistance.
There was a man, Nate, and a woman whose name I’m afraid I do not remember. They were traveling in separate cars. They moved my bike off the road and waited with me until my wife was able to get there to pick me up.
Nate stayed with my motorcycle until a friend of ours arrived to ride it home for me. While I was waiting at the side of the road, several people stopped to see if I was OK and to ask if they could help in any way.
I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who stopped and especially to the two kind strangers who helped and waited with me during this somewhat unsettling experience. I am truly grateful for your selflessness and concern. I’m happy to let you know that I’m doing fine.
