Zach Duty says he was on his motorcycle on Highway 169 Monday morning around 7:00 when he says a woman driving a Chrysler 300 was speeding and slammed into him.
He tells KRMG, “My bike is loud. It’s bright. There’s no reason why she shouldn’t have heard me, seen me. I do everything I can to stay visible.”
Duty flew over the handlebars, sending him and the bike under the car.
He says, “The bike had kind of wedged itself in there and it stopped the car from completely laying on my chest.”
Several drivers pulled over and rushed to help.
“They just kept me awake, kept me there.”
The father of two would like to find those drivers to thank them in person.
After their help, he was out of the hospital by the afternoon.
“Wow is an understatement.”
The ending could have been much different.
He wants to remind drivers to keep their eyes on the road.
“I ride a motorcycle all the time. I watch drivers all day long texting and doing their makeup. You know, they’re in a steel cage."
