Street Racing Brats Do The UNTHINKABLE To Motorcycle Riding Vet
Sixty-one year old Rollin Gray was a father to a 15-year old son, and Vietnam War veteran hero of this nation.
He loved to ride his motorcycle, and while out for a bit of joy in Spanaway, Washington he met with tragedy. His son will now finish his teens, his most important years when he will really need his dad, without him.
Two teenagers, a 16-year old and an 18-year old, thought it would be a good idea to do a bit of street racing. The younger in his red Dodge Stratus, and older in a black Acura, opted to take on the world down the middle of the road.
They raced in the opposite direction, on the opposite side of the road from oncoming veteran Gray. One or both of the boys lost control of their vehicles and they ended up launching themselves over the center divider and plowed straight into Mr. Gray.
Rather than stay and call for help, they drove off. How callous do you have to be? Their parents must be so proud that raised such heartless murderers. Mr. Gray suffered extensive injuries.
His body was broken—head, back, leg(s). He was transported to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. All because a couple of teen road warriors thought it would be fun to play hot-wheels in the street.
“They have taken a man’s life who did nothing but give to this country, give to his community, raise a family,” said Gray’s friend Bill Saxton. “He still has a son who’s not even out of high school yet, I believe he’s 15-years-old, he’s his namesake, and now he’s left without a father.”
Meanwhile, the boys were cited and released while Gray lay in a hospital fighting for his life. Will they be charged with murder? They willfully took another’s life into their hands and destroyed it.
That is no different than a drunk, or texter behind the wheel. That decision will be left up to the Pierce County Prosecutor. Meanwhile, two teenage street thugs roam free, and another teen buries his dad.
