Motorcyclist was under the influence of marijuana and alcohol and had one headlight but didn't turn the light on till the last second by the time my father crossed and was almost across when the motorcyclist come across and hit him and it was to late and he even brought him out of the road when he flew into his truck and kept him calm and called 911 until they arrived and the truck was completely totaled. The dude on the motorcycle was at fault for speeding and under the influence at the same time.
