Friends and Neighbors in the News

From last Thursday's Sentinel and Enterprise:

Pair of motorcycle wrecks sends one rider to hospital
By Aaron Wasserman

Two motorcycle accidents within a span of 90 minutes created traffic delays on local roads Wednesday afternoon and sent one Lunenburg resident to the hospital.


Another motorcyclist escaped a separate accident without much harm after a South Lancaster woman driving a black Chevrolet Blazer knocked over his vehicle while he was traveling south on Route 117.

The Blazer's driver, Edna Roberts, 75, said at the scene that she could not see the motorcycle as she turned from an I-190 exit ramp onto Route 117.

"I looked both ways and sat for cars to come by and with the sun shining in my eyes, I couldn't see the motorcycle," she said.

The accident occurred at about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The motorcyclist, Raul Burgueno, 56, of Arlington, said he hurt his right arm and leg, but eventually drove off under his own strength.

His burgundy Honda motorcycle, adorned with a Uruguayan flag, had minor damage to its structure.

Roberts approached Burgueno and apologized to him before he continued on his trip.

"I did not see him and I just feel terrible," she said.
I know to keep reading when the article references a "South Lancaster woman" (or man) as only Adventists claim South Lancaster as their place of residence.
