Biker Fatality TRUE STORY
BikerDown has been asking motorcycle riders for 12 years to keep this ICE Emergency Card filled out with their emergency contact information and store it behind their license or ID card. Well this week, we wanted to share a true story of the benefits of doing this simple task.
A rider in Las Vegas chapter sadly lost her life at the hands of a driver doing a left turn. She was taken to hospital and then the coroner's office.
Friends and her beloved family had no idea where she was taken and many rushed to the scene of the accident.
About 7pm last night, BikerDown received a call from Las Vegas and it was the Clark County Coroner's office, stating that they had found this card in her belongings and wanted to get in touch with her family right away. We were able to conference call in our biker advocate Shannon "Dazzlin" Venturo, who conferenced in the victims mother. In minutes, because of this card, the family knew exactly where there daughter/granddaughter was and are taking the necessary actions today.
If you would like a card for yourself, your group, club or organization, you can get them FREE of charge, just pay the shipping. We can send them out in lots of 25 or more.
Hospitals will not know how to contact your loved ones if you don't have this card somewhere in your wallet or something similar. Your phone could be junk, password protected or lost.
Please take this simple step, so that in the event of an accident or sadly a tragedy, your friends and family will be notified and your wishes honored.
