On June 17 at 3:03 pm, a 65-year-old male was trying to load his motorcycle onto a trailer, but the battery was dead. He attached a rope to the locking mechanism of the trunk of his vehicle and wrapped the other end of the rope around the handlebars of his motorcycle and held them in place with his hands. He told his wife to accelerate the car and he would “pop the clutch” to start the motorcycle. After accelerating, his wife looked in the rear view mirror and saw that he had released the ropes, but was wobbling side to side, then crashed down. She backed up to where he and the motorcycle were and saw that he was unconscious and bleeding. As she went to call 911, a neighbor came outside already on the phone. The man was transported to a local hospital where he was diagnosed with 4 brain bleeds and a collapsed lung. He is currently in critical, but stable condition.
