On February 11, 2017 our lives were forever changed. While visiting family in Charlotte, NC a motorist that was not alert to my husband on his motorcycle came over into his lane making contact with his bike and the results were catastrophic. When the vehicle made contact with his wheel it caused it to hit the curb throwing him 10-15 feet in the air and into a tree. After striking the tree he was thrown 75 feet landing head first under a parked car in someone’s yard. Fire and EMS had to jack the car up to get him out from under it.
The accident happened right outside of TJ’s brothers neighborhood. As we exited the neighborhood all four lanes of traffic were at a complete stop. EMS and fire were already gone only police remained waiting the arrival of a tow truck. I saw his motorcycle in what was later counted to be 27 large pieces and four 5 gallon buckets of smaller pieces… and I fell to my knees in tears. I thought I was never going to see him again. It was 3 hours later before we got to see him, what seemed like an absolute eternity, but I was SO incredibly thankful he was alive!! But this was all just the beginning of a huge turn in our lives we never saw coming.
