ACROSS OUR REGION
Motorcyclist, 22, killed after crash with car


May 27, 2003


COUNTY/STATE

A motorcyclist was killed when his motorcycle and a car collided Monday afternoon on the Far Southside.

Michael J. Rabourn, 22, was pronounced dead at Wishard Memorial Hospital 1 1/2 hours after the 12:50 p.m. accident, said Marion County Sheriff's Lt. Phil Burton.

The accident occurred in the 1800 block of East Stop 11 Road. Investigators said Rabourn was driving westbound on Stop 11 Road and following his father, who was on another motorcycle.

Eastbound on the same road was a car driven by Bryan D. Chaney, 16. Deputies said Chaney's car went left of the center line and hit Rabourn, who was knocked from his motorcycle and hit by another car.

Deputies said they were told by medical technicians who treated Chaney for minor injuries that he told them he fell asleep while driving home from work. There were no immediate arrests or citations from deputies, said Burton.

Wow, that sucks


One of the first things I was told when I turned 16 was 'Treat your car like a weapon. If you don't respect it, you can kill someone'

No immediate arrests or citations!!!!!?? So i guess falling asleep behind the wheel and killing motorcyclists is acceptable now. I bet his ass would be in the slammer if he would have hit a school bus and did'nt kill anybody.
