Fatal Kent County Drunk Driver Motorcycle Accident

0 Comment

I heard a tragic story on the news over the weekend about a fatal Kent County drunk driver motorcycle accident. According to the Grand Rapids Police, Stafford Ray was traveling on Division Avenue near Labelle when a 2003 Ford Mustang allegedly struck his 1997 Kawasaki motorcycle as it turned onto Labelle. Ray’s motorcycle caught fire and he died on the scene. Police state that the Mustang was allegedly driven by Ronald Windom, who was driving on a suspended license. Police suspect that alcohol was involved and continue to investigate this tragic accident.

I  am very sorry to hear that this tragic and fatal motorcycle accident happened. My condolences go out to the family and friends of the biker.
