    Default Crazy Accident on Nose Hill Drive

    Ouch... hate to hear stuff like this, just another reminder for everyone to slow down, especially guys on bikes!

    From Citybeat:

    --snip---

    Last night at 11:22 PM Calgary EMS responded with CPS and CFD
    to a motor vehicle crash at Nosehill Drive and Silver Springs
    BV NW.

    Paramedics arrived and found a motorcycle had collided with a
    car. The motorbike was on fire and the male occupant was
    critically injured and thrown from the collision.

    Paramedics attempted Advanced Life Support procedures and
    transported the 40 year old male to Foothills Trauma Center.
    Despite resuscitative attempts the patient was pronounced
    dead shortly after his arrival at hospital.

    I also heard he was drunk. If so, he has zero sympathy from me!

    I heard "alcohol may have been a factor", but didn't hear if they were talking about the motorcyclist or the driver of the car - what did you hear?
    It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

    If the motorcyclist rear-ended the car or SUV, then I would presume he was too drunk to see that traffic had stopped or reacted to late. IT happened on 9th ave downtown last summer. Same thing, a couple of yahoos got loaded at Cowboys in the middle of the day, got on a bike (2 of them) and rammed into the back of a Suburban that was stopped in traffic and killed themselves.

    If the bike slammed into the back of the vehicle most likely the guy was drunk and yeah...

    And Kiss FM has only been on the air for less than a week and I already can't stand it. Seems as though they only have 1 cd that they have on auto repeat

    I'm sure it will get better once they hire some live DJ's to spin the tunes.

    I heard they're just doing a trial run right not to see how the response on the new station is (which is why there's limited music, no commercials, no djs'). They'll definitely get some better music once they get some advertisements up.

    The bike was coming up nosehill dr towards arbourlake when it hit right at the intersection at the Silversprings PHO place. It collided with the car as the car was making a left turn at the lights into the plaza. The bike spun the car right around and completely took out the C-pillar and the side rear door of the car.

    How do i know so much....i was there about 10 minutes after the accident happened. I was heading up to rage's house and passed by that intersection. I stopped and took a look and the guy (motorcyclist) was being put into the ambulance at the time. Talked to the first guy on the scene and he says that the cyclist was basically laying there motionless with blood coming out of his ears and mouth. His body was all fucked and he could see a bone sticking out of the guy's wrist. When I saw the bike it was a mangled piled of smoking metal and rubber...not a pleasant site at all.

    My apologies to the motorcycle driver for my previous assumption, that asshole car driver should get eye for an eye punishment!

    What makes it even sadder was the his wife died with cancer last year. He has two sons that are orphans now.

    Two teenage boys who doted on their father after their mother died recently, have been tragically orphaned after a suspected drunk driver killed their dad in a motorcycle crash.

    Grieving family members of motorcyclist Steven Rutledge say his two sons, Jesse, 13, and Shane, 14, relied heavily on their father after their mom died last year.

    Rutledge and his sons were making last-minute preparations for a camping vacation in the interior of B.C. which they were about to enjoy.

    "Steve just lived for his kids. He was a strong family man," said his sister-in-law, Jinette Boulet.

    After Steve's wife, Rachelle, died last year, the two boys were thrown closer to their father.

    "My sister died last year of cancer, and since then the boys have relied on their father, and he has relied on them," said Boulet.

    "He was such a caring and giving person, he has always been there for whoever needed him."

    Rutledge, 40, who was a journeyman mechanic at the Canadian Tire store at Richmond Rd. S.W., came from a large family, with five brothers and sisters.

    "There is a great deal of family support for the boys," said Boulet.

    She said now wasn't the time to reflect on the involvement of a suspected drunk driver in the crash that killed her brother-in-law.

    "We are going to devote our whole time to caring for and supporting the boys. That's our top priority right now," said Boulet.

    VALUED EMPLOYEE

    At the Canadian Tire store where he had worked for 12 years, Rutledge was a valued employee.

    "He was popular with the staff, well-liked, and he would help anyone who needed it," said service manager Phil Rose.

    "After his wife died, he was very close to his boys, they were very close-knit.

    "They were about to go off camping into the interior of B.C. for a week."

    In the fiery collision at 11:22 p.m. Monday, Rutledge was driving his motorcycle north on Nosehill Dr. N.W. when police say a southbound car attempted to turn left onto Silver Springs Blvd.

    FATAL INJURIES

    the collision, the motorcycle burst into flames and Rutledge was thrown clear, suffering injuries from which he later died in Foothills Hospital.

    "The driver of the southbound vehicle, David Sundermann, 20, of Calgary, was charged with impaired driving causing death and refusing to provide a breath sample," said Insp. Brooke Bishop.

    That's really sad. This year (particularily the summer) hasn't been very good as far as car accidents involving fatalities. I hope the drunk driver gets hung
