scene.

Witnesses stated Toney Kilpatrick, 38, was operating a green Kawasaki 125cc motorcycle northbound on the St. Marks Bike Trail. Near the intersection of the bike trail and Four Points Way, the motorcycle struck a culvert. After striking the culvert, the motorcycle struck Dikeesha Johnson, 35.

    NO this guy wasn't an angel, not even close so yes his character is a factor. He had a rap sheet longer than the TITANTIC, and he should've still been locked up. He had reformed or rehabilitated, just by the comment from the person in the trailer park. Driving like a fool around young children in a limited space. I know the Kilpatrick families, and for the life of me it's very disheartening to see an offspring of this upstanding family fall as Toney did. But GOD has made his decision and we all must move on. Heart and sympathies to both families, holding to his unchanging hands.

    Eternal_Wait: What the HELL does his offense record have to do with the accident????? Waiting for an answer.

    Thanks SAD, Reformed & Me. I thought of predisposed, predetermined, prednisone, etc... I am curious about the details of this tragic event. I can easily see how an idiot recklessly riding a high performance dirt bike on a paved bicycle trail with no helment could crash and die, (this is a high risk activity). For him to hit a culvert and kill a pedestrian must have been a 1 in a million shot. This is a news comment site, not a memorial for the deceased or a religious proclamation site. There are other websites for those kind of comments.

    This event was a tragedy first and foremost. We can only wait until more details are provided. However, I looked at Kilpatrick's offense records and found him to be no angel but neither an habitual lawbreaker. Motorcycles are a fact, they exist for transportation and entertainment, they are sufficient to cause death and provide little protection to their operators. I truly regret this news as we are speaking of an individual who took so many public risks and took more than just what he had to offer but also that of Dikeesha Johnson. Be conscious, be safe, live, and may the victim and offender not be forgotten.
