On my husbands way to work this morning,
he was detoured from his normal route as he could see a horrific accident,
leaving a man dead in the middle of Tropicana (the road our office is on).
He called me 15 minutes later and told me to turn the news on....
the man in the road was a good friend of ours and the owner to the
hubbys 2nd job.
I learned by watching the news that this was no accident,
though it was a hit and run. He knelt down on his knees in the
middle of the road and when he saw the truck coming, he tucked
his head between his knees and it was over. (per: a witness)
He left behind a little boy, a family and a whole lot of friends who love him dearly.
He was very wealthy and I guess couldn't take the pressure of life anymore.
It is a very sad day in the Valley today... we lost a wonderful soul.
God Bless you Bobby.... RIP Baby... we will miss you!
Life is TOO short! Live every day like there is no other! Always, Always... have a good time!
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND WORDS, THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS....
I have just been sick to my stomach all day and this is the only release I can seem to find
is by blogging and writting. THANK YOU ALL!
UPDATE ON THE ACCIDENT:
Since yesterday, it has been all over the Vegas news.... we now have the TRUTH behind what happened and I think
I am more pissed now than before!
Apparently, Bobby had been drinking at a local Bar here (PT's) and over time, his tab was $537. The bar tender asked him to leave because he was too trashed. Bobby then "walked", disoriented and very intoxicated..... he started to walk West on Tropicana and sat on the curb.... he leaned forward to put his head between his legs and he fell over into oncoming traffic and was struck and killed on impact (according to more witnesses that stepped forward.)
Metro is still looking for the driver.... they believe the driver was even unaware that they hit a person (it was 5am).
We are all going to the accident site tonight to have a memorial and a prayer circle. I just feel so badis little boy, he is only 6.
