    This man is my Uncle. He is one of my life heroes and is one of the strongest people I know. When I heard word of him being hit and in critical state with little chance to survive my heart droped to my feet. I tried to keep it from coming out so hard cuz I didnt want to belive it. I was so afraid of seeing him pass away. I dont know what I would do without him in my life. I thank the lord for watching over him. I agree that people should keep an eye out for riders on the road. I ride and so do may of my friends and family members. I have been riding for 6 mts and have had many people cut me off and pull out in front of me, and many have been on phones or just ran/rolled a stop sign/light. Everyone please be safe out there and keep my Uncle in your stongest prayers.

    My late husband & I also rode. Many years before we married his cousin was killed on a bike at the age of 19. I want to make sure Dwayne & his family know the SUV driver & her family are deeply concerned. For everyone who have stated she "simply received a ticket" you just will never know. This horrific accident has brought back memories of many long days praying for a miracle that never came to a their loved one. I implore everyone on here to channel your anger & frustration to the people who have the authority to correct that intersection. Take a stand and as others on here have written make yourself heard.I also want everyone to know the driver is a person who has spent many years of her life serving our country thru active duty & as one of the first Female American Legion Commanders. As we pray for Dwayne & his broken body please also remember her because no matter how many people she has served or will serve she will always live with this horrible accident.

    Accidents happen everyday, all day, everywhere. Does not matter if it is an suv vs a motorcycle or an 18 wheeler vs another 18 wheeler. Ultimately boils down to the safe decisions of the drivers. wreckless, unattentive, on the phone, or on the text message is not safe driving. There is no such thing as a vehicle "accident". Someone is always in error . Accidents dont happen by themselves without a driver . Thoughts go out for both involved and a speedy recovery for Dwayne.

    People need to pull over for cell phone calls, and pay attention. and to the person who called Bikers stupid people, get a brain. Motorcycles have the same rights cars and redneck trucks do.

    many prayers for Mr Hagan. my husband & i enjoy getting out at every opportunity for a ride on our harley. he is a very safe & cautious rider. I only wish auto drivers would show caution & respect for the bikes on the road. .....Drivers, please stay aware of your surroundings, there maybe someone out on their BIKE enjoying a sunny afternoon, just like you in your car. (There was a fatality a few yrs ago at this intersection, a pedestrian was hit crossing the road.)

    I am so sorry to hear about Dwayne. He is such a nice guy and was so proud of getting his bike. Is there a website or my/space that the family is keeping updates on somewhere? Hang in there buddy, we are all praying for you.
