My sincerest condolences go out to Chase Hunt (son), family and friends of Danny Hunt.
One our fellow riders, Danny Hunt died in a horrific accident this morning shortly after the midnight hour. His son, Chase was on the scene, but is OK. Danny's son, Chase is a Galveston County Sheriff.
I came up on the scene very shortly after. A real mess. The driver of the car that hit him was drunk. He hit him on the side of the road and tried to flee. His car gave out about 300 yards away. He was out walking on the highway. I had to keep him off the road until the police got him. The suspect is 75, a grandfather, never been in trouble in his life. Now faces intoxicated manslaughter and possibly attempted fleeing the scene. Another felony.
Every family involved loses in this one.
No winners. I haven't slept any and again want to send my my condolences. I wish there was something more I could do. I feel so utterly powerless.
