Kyle is gone
Last night, Kyle (@TheRedburn, née MasterBuilderK) was hit by a truck while biking. He was killed nearly instantly.
Nothing else matters in my post from here on in, but I'll tell you more since we're all human and want to know more.
It happened fairly late. The truck ran a stoplight; Kyle had the right of way. No DUI was involved and the driver did stop and was arrested. It happened at 12 Mile & Mound, near the old house. An off-duty Warren detective was nearby so the response was extremely fast.
Brian, Nicole, Perry, Tracey, and Ray each rushed to the hospital separately. Aaron and Cola rushed home to give Nicole their car.
I got the text just before midnight as I was about to crawl into my sleeping bag after getting 12 young boys to set up their campsite, eat, and go to sleep at a giant Scouting event happening out near the airport. Luckily another adult from our unit happened to be on staff at the event and was able to cover for me (2 adults are required in camp and there were only 2 of us). I left my tent and walked the mile and a half to my car in the rain, gear strapped to my back.
I got home about 1am. Soon after, the storm really picked up and started pouring. Brian and Nicole returned from the hospital about 2am. Perry spent the night with friends.
I'll keep you updated of the plans.
