WATCH: Surveillance footage shows shocking moment Ascension Parish man gets hit by motorcycle in parking lot

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)– An Ascension Parish man is recovering after being hit by a motorcycle on Thursday evening.

Trynity Richard was walking across the parking lot when he was allegedly struck by Tyler Nelson on his motorcycle. Richard’s injuries were so severe he doesn’t remember anything after the crash except waking up in a hospital bed the next morning.

“It’s really a blur to me… I just remember waking up at 8 in the morning in the emergency room, I didn’t even know I got hit by a bike,” Richard said.

Richard says the only recollection he has of what happened that

Four Auto Sales Trends To Watch In 2021

If the massive and diverse U.S. auto industry was a car, you could say its ride on “route 2020” was a bumpy one, with lots of blind spots and detours that led to a fairly comfortable downhill finish, which then ran smack into a crazy roundabout called highway 2021.

Americans aren’t the only ones in love with vintage Harley bikes.

When you think of classic Harley-Davidson motorcycles, you probably automatically assume an American would be the only one interested in riding it. At least, you would if you believe the story some people like to push that in other countries Harleys are looked down upon universally.
