On March 15th, my dad, Daniel Bowers SR was killed in a motorcycle accident. My dad was going east on 104th and Washington and a guy in truck pulled out in front of him, making a left turn going west causing my dad to slam into his back left tire. He died of impact. The man is being charged with reckless driving resulting in death, which in the state of Colorado is a misdemeanor.
We have 10 witness reports stating that the guy rushed out of the parking lot trying to beat my dad and another car. The car was able to move out of the way my dad tried everything he could do to stop but he wasn't too lucky. The guy took away a very loved man. He was a father of three, a grandpa, a brother, a son, a best friend and so much more. It's not far the guy gets to live his life like nothing happened. We lost a very important piece in our lives that we will never get back. The less that could happen is the guy gets charge with a felony. It just seems like all he gets is a slap on the hand and he gets to go on with his life. I know he's living with guilt but it's not the same.
I want to see something happen even if he doesn't get charge, I do not want this to happen to anyone else's loved ones. It should be a law that if you are charged with reckless driving resulting in death the charges should be a felony.
We, the undersigned, call on the State of Colorado to get justice for the Bowers family, and to change the charges to at least felony manslaughter.
