This is a bad as anything ever could be.
A couple who survived a head-on collision two years ago were killed Thursday morning when a truck slammed into them as they rode a tandem bike in Northwest Bexar County, authorities said.
Gregory and Alexandra Bruehler, parents of a 7-year-old girl, were struck from behind while riding their two-person bicycle on the shoulder of Texas 16, about three miles north of Helotes.
Alexandra Bruehler, 36, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her 42-year-old husband was airlifted to University Hospital, where he died about an hour later. Their daughter, Kylie, was not with them.
Erik over at tucsonbikelawyer.com has a write up as well. Be warned, Erik posted a photo of Kylie standing at her parents memorial service. It’s brutal. It broke my heart in two.
A trust fund has been set up for Kylie Bruehler.
That poor girl is facing a lot of pain. No child should ever have her parents taken from her like that. No child should ever have to bury her parents at that age.
True to form, the driver is not facing charges. At least not currently. I lost it and posted a error filled comment on Tucson Bike Lawyer. Not the tightest thing I’ve put together in my life, that’s for sure. But I stand behind the substance. Bottom line – this is bullshit. You do not kill two people with a pickup truck and walk away. Not on my watch. No way.by
