My twin brother, Michael Trusty (Navy Seabee First Class) was in a motorcycle accident while riding his 2019 Harley Davidson Street Glide Special (blacked out) to Norfolk Base in Virginia Beach, VA on November 4, 2019. He had recently purchased his bike for Harley of New Orleans around Memorial Day in May 2019. He was headed to work when a 16 year old girl turned left into his left side on the bike. My brother and his bike landed approximately 20 feet (or more) away from the accident site. He was unconscious when the EMTs arrived.
