    I feel like I have to pipe in here. My name is carrieann champagne and I was on the motorcycle. Thanks everyone for the kind words. I am healing. I was from 20 feet and rendered unconscious with a totally shattered knee and brain bleed. I know we weren’t going fast. I also know that I did not write a citation the citation was written to the young woman who pulled out in front of us because the witnesses said she pulled out front of us. that being said I hope she’s handling this all well and tell her we’re doing fine.
