Motorcyclist: Life saved by heroes who lifted car

This accident made national news. I was on my way from a training session on campus when an ambulance, fire truck, and several campus security vehicles stopped traffic and zipped right by the building I work in. I wondered what had happened and hoped it was nothing serious.

Later that evening, as I watched the news, it became apparent what had happened:

In this Monday, Sept. 12, 2011 image taken from video, a group of people tilt a burning BMW up to free Brandon Wright, on his back on the ground, who was pinned underneath after he collided with the car while riding his motorcycle on U.S. 89 in Logan, Utah. Authorities said Wright was riding his motorcycle near the Utah State University campus in Logan when the 21-year-old collided with the BMW that was pulling out of a parking lot. Tire and skid marks on the highway indicate that Wright laid the bike down and slid along the road before colliding with the car, Assistant Police Chief Jeff Curtis said.

Started a New Job

Started a new job today at Utah State University in Logan, Utah.
Working as a Staff Assistant for the Food Sciences Department.

The building that I work in is behind the cemetery to the right of the stadium. Kiddy-corner from the stadium across the cemetery back behind all the pine trees.

When I hike, it is usually up Logan Canyon, which is in the background, about 15 miles to the Right Hand Fork Trailhead, which is just off Old Ephraim's Cutoff.
