Hi, sorry for the lack of clarity. My understanding of the accident is based on a person to small group chat with the current "owner" of the STAYIN SAFE programs. He said that info. Gleaned from the person that hit him,phone calls made,police investigations, Larry was riding home from a training,he made a habit of getting off the road by sundown, but had stopped at one hotel,maybe more,? That had no vacancy. He continued on a rural road. Indications were the the deer collision was not fatal-and that Larry was found to have all the gear on....the best conclusion is that several minutes later he was struck by a vehicle(I do not know if car or truck). Clearly one can surmise that he was either not physically(mechanically or cognitively)able to move himself off the roadway. I,like most of the folks on the forum dislike assuming,rumors,in-accurate story telling. To the best of my knowledge, that is what happened,,and is why I have reflective tape stuck all over the bottom of my bikes and all over any riding gear that might be visible if I'm ever lying in the middle or side of a road somewhere.interestingly we met a lot of folks who swear by those deer/moose/elk whistles when we were up in the Yukon.??
