The full story
Perhaps you would find the full story (and cover-up being done by the Butler County sheriff)... (case #12-5085) the officer caused the motorcycle accident. He watched what he caused in his rearview mirror when he passed a southbound motorcycle in a no passing zone at a high rate of speed.
Interesting that the accident reports our motorcycles struck each other.. and depending on which story you read... the accident report or the one printed in your paper... who struck who... the 1st, 2nd or 3rd motorcycle...in reality.. None of our motorcycles struck any of the others ever.
I went down trying to avoid a head on collision with SGT Luke W. Grimes ... who isn't even listed or mentioned in any way on the accident report.
This appears to be an obvious cover-up if you ask me.
There were multiple witnesses at the scene, including the southbound motorcyclist the officer passed in a no passing zone ... as well as other witnesses that were northbound just ahead of our group.
I am so disheartened by the "Story" being put out by the Butler County Sheriffs office.
My Husband Randy was the lead motorcycle in our group and he was able to pull over to the right out of the way of the speeding Sheriff's vehicle just in time to avoid collision.
He was farther up and saw the officer crest the hill. I was not able to see the officer until he was coming over and was completely in my lane coming at me.
I was not following my husband too closely as the Sheriff stated and my bike never struck his!
This area is a 55mph speed zone. With a vehicle coming at you at the same speed or faster ... there is very little time or space to react.
My brother William (Bill) and his wife Tonya also crashed in this accident. They were on one motorcycle together behind mine. He never follows too close... but all he had time to do was react to my hard braking as I tried to avoid being hit head on. His motorcycle never struck mine or any other motorcycle.
