Two months ago two Bridgeport firefighters lost their lives as they battled a fire. In order to honor their memory and their sacrifice bikers from across New England organized a tribute ride.
The memorial ride, which included at least 2,000 riders, went smoothly until a driver pulled in front of a biker, causing a serious accident that injured one of the rides participants.
The injured biker was struck a vehicle when it pulled out into the street where there was a small break in the line of bikers. He driver, of Newtown, has been cited for multiple infractions to include a stop sign violation, driving in the improper lane and improper passing.
The biker, of Massachusetts, was treated at Danbury Hospital and later released.
The staff and attorneys at Hupy & Abraham hope that the injured biker is well on his way to making a full recovery. We are glad to see that so many people came out to honor the fallen firefighters. Thank you to each and every one of you for your support.
