Couple killed when Tri-Glide loses wheel


Most people consider a trike safer than two-wheeled motorcycles.

Not always. From The Associated Press:

A woman died on a St. Petersburg highway after the three-wheeled motorcycle she was riding on lost a wheel and crashed.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 63-year-old William Riley was riding his 2009 Harley Davidson TriGlide with his wife, 63-year-old Janet Riley, on the back Thursday night. The bike crashed, and both riders were thrown. Janet Riley died at the scene, and William Riley was taken to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

The crash was not alcohol-related, and both riders were wearing helmets.
