Distric Heights Woman Killed by Sportbike - August 28, 2007, 05:08 AM

Last night around 7PM, according to the news, while in a cross walk a woman was struck by one of two alledgedly street racing motorcycles. One stopped and answered police questions, one stopped because of a much needed trip to the hospital.

I hope you get well soon. I will leave the name calling to the rest of the board if they see fit.

Bet they were just speeding and they view that as racing.
RIP lady.


RIP Greg Walker, I will never forget you

If everybody thought before they spoke, the silence would be deafening

Hmmm don't know if they were racing but the fact that the second bike stuck around makes you kinda wonder if they were even speeding? Maybe like 10 over but who knows.

racing yeah I am sure, I race to work

maybe she shoulda looked before walking in the street

cross walk or none, my momma taught me to look both ways before entering the street

fuck pedestrians, especially in Old Town Alexandria , DC, and New York City

did anyone see if she was talking on the cell phone?

Here's that comment... back to rocket bikes!!
Sucks for the pedestrian...RIP... I hope we find out what happened. Someone raised a good point - if they were racing, would the other guy have stopped?

Motorcycles racing on the public highways, now THERE"s a shock, right? I see that kind of stupidity all the time. While there's lots of bikers out there who DO drive carefully, lots of people on those rocket bikes seem to treat the highways as their own private racetracks. And before anyone gets started on pedestrians; I'm a full-time pedestrian and while I DO see other pedestrians take stupid chances when they're crossing the street, even if we DO cross at crosswalks, with the light, etc., it seems everyone out there is trying to run us over. (come on now, don't you drivers, even just going to and from work, see lots and lots of careless drivers on the road?)

Delete what? If anything, this may give you a heads up for even more aggressive and unnecessary profiling. i didn't accuse the riders of racing, but rather informed people of what the press is calling it. An unfortunate event that occurs regularly in this area with pedestrians getting struck by cars is bad, but add a sportbike to the mix and things are bound to get bad for this community.

This lady crossed the street in a non lit busy 2 lane road with no cross walk. I think she wanted to die. Jeez If she was hit by a smart car would the report be about racing or a dumb pedestrian comitting suicide. I hate the news, If they keep this crap up everyone will hate us. Whatch there going to start saying lets ban motorcycles again.

Stupid
