Police Chief Remains in Hospital after Motorcycle Accident

Lowell Police Chief Joe Landers is in critical condition after a motorcycle accident.  While Landers was in Panama City, FL a drunk driver hit his Harley motorcycle bike.  As a result, Landers was thrown off of his bike.  The drunk driver, John Christo, did not stop.  Landers was seriously injured.

The police chief is still in critical condition and his brain is still suffering swelling.  He has minimal pupil activity and function.  The people in Lowell are offering prayers as the accident occurred 800 miles away.  Landers had more than 17 years of service on the police force and the town is rallying around his recovery.

Tampa Bay Ray is Out of Luck

Tampa Bay Rays players Matthew Bush and Brandon Guyer are being sued for $5 million each.  The Tufano family claims that after hitting 72-year-old Anthony Tufano, who was on his motorcycle, the defendants ran.  He further asserts that Bush was drunk, having a blood-alcohol content of 0.18.

Bush, who does not have a driver’s license and has two prior DUIs, was driving Guyer’s SUV when he hit the man.  Tufano is still in intensive care with 10 broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken back and other injuries.  The $10 million figure is for the large medical bills the plaintiff is likely to sustain, and for pain and suffering.
