I am a survivor of a rear-end collision while riding my moped. Luckily I didn't endure being dragged for two miles while the driver was fleeing but that's how far away my bike was found. The driver got away with almost killing me. I am so sorry for your loss and I'm glad to know the person responsible will pay for it. Sorry for his families too because they ultimately will have to live with the actions their loved one made that killed a guy who hasn't yet lived.
