Hello my·name is Daniel on March 11th 2014 I was on my motorcycle on the interstate heading towards Twin Falls, ID to work for a week. All of a sudden a truck swerved in to my lane in front of me and then slammed on his breaks. I was going 80MPH and I had less than a car length in between me and the truck to stop. I knew if I hit it dead on I would have went over the truck so with a few seconds to think I turned my bike sideways and slammed into the back of the truck.
While being rushed to St. Alphonsus hospital in Boise Idaho, which was really cool to fly in a helicopter, I came to realize the next day how bad of shape I was in and how lucky of a person I was. I ended up with a little bit of road rash on my back and two brakes in my left tubule and fibula and shattered my femur and ankle on my right leg. I was in the hospital for a week. While having to be in a wheel chair with two broken legs and quit a few metal pins screwed into my ankle and calf, of course I couldn't work and with rejections from government agencies I had no way of paying my bills or food.
Lucky the Organization called Fallen Rider Fund Idaho came to the rescue and helped me out for a couple months. They kept a roof over my head and food in _my stomach and I will be eternally grateful for the Fallen Rider fund Idaho Group for helping me out when no one else would. The Fallen Rider Fund Idaho was started by a loving couple Vicki and Jay whose son died in a motorcycle accident. In memory of their son they started this organization to help other injury motorcyclists. The Fallen Rider Fund Idaho has a ride every year and accepts donations to raise money to help people who have been in a motorcycle accident, just like they helped me. I would encourage anyone who loves to ride to help this organization to grow and go for a ride and meet some wonderful people. Enjoy and Ride on!
