Vehicle hits Motorcycle
By: Thomas Ryll
"Kerry Christal and her 14-year-old daughter
were headed home from garage-sale shopping on
the afternoon of Aug. 28, 2004, when they
stopped in a line of traffic stalled on Fourth
Plain Road. On the pavement in front of them lay
a black Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
Anxiety swept over Christal. She knew what a
Harley-Davidson looked like; her husband owned
one, a 1986 1100 Sportster. He was riding it
that afternoon. It was black.
Home was two miles away. The caller ID on the
Christals' telephone dashed any thought that her
fears about the downed motorcycle were
irrational. There it was on the display: Legacy
Emanuel Hospital. Kerry was distraught. Her
daughter ran outside, screaming.
"Our stomachs were sick," Kerry recalled. "It
was horrible. Absolutely horrible."
Rick Christal was in Legacy's intensive care
unit with a head injury sustained when he was
thrown 50 feet after being hit by a car that
pulled out of a parking lot. The motorist was
leaving a Little League field to get a glove for
Attorney Advertising. Prior
