FYI: Gary was injured in El Tour, the most critical in the pack of 10 hit by a 91 yr old driver that left the scene on 11/22/08. He has been in a drug induced coma, has had three brain surgery’s, seizures, and a Trekiodmey to name just a few and below is our latest with great news, but he is still critical so all your prayers are still needed, and we thank you. Besides prayers, Richard De. has opened a “Bank of America” account in Gary’s name please help in any way you can. PBAA has info on their web site.
Stay safe always
UPDATE GARY STUEBE:
Gary opened his eyes yesterday. I asked him if he could hear me to blink his eyes. He did!
He is on Dialysis right now but doctors believe his kidneys will regain their function now that he is waking up. He is still very critical.
Please pass along this to anyone and everyone in the cycling community.
Gary Stuebe medical fund at any Bank of America. It is in Gary Stuebe’s name. Gary’s wife Angela is not working so she can take care of the family and be with Gary as much as possible. Gary obviously hasn’t worked in almost 4 weeks now.
Christmas is a time of giving. If just everyone who gets this could donate $10.00 it would help Angela pay monthly household bills, buy food, and some Christmas gifts for their children.
ps – Gary’s 42nd birthday was on Friday the 19th.
Be thankful for what you have this holiday season. Hug your kids.
We really did make a difference in this case and hopefully more in the future.
Thanks for all your help.
I don’t know if you’ve heard yet or not, but the driver has been indicted by the Grand Jury.
Charges Filed in El Tour de Tucson Case
(Tucson, Arizona) – Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall announced today that after a review of the law enforcement investigation into the collision between a vehicle and several bicyclists that occurred at the intersection of Ina Road and Westward Look on November 22, 2008 during the El Tour de Tucson, Mr. William Wilson has been indicted by the Pima County Grand Jury with Leaving the Scene of an Accident Involving Serious Physical Injury.
The County Attorney’s review of the case consisted of the Sheriff’s department reports, audio statements of witnesses, collision reconstruction, scene diagram, a visit to the scene, communication tapes and radio logs, and being present during an inspection of the suspect vehicle.
After the collision, William Wilson had a legal duty to remain at the scene and provide information to law enforcement. He failed to do so and was charged with the following statute:
28-661. Accidents involving death or personal injuries
A. The driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to or death of a person shall:
1. Immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident or as close to the accident scene as possible but shall immediately return to the accident scene.
2. Remain at the scene of the accident until the driver has fulfilled the requirements of section 28-663.
