Hope young Anthony will recover soon and may live a normal vigorous life without the need or desire to ride a motorcycle again. God bless him.

Hope Anthony is recovering well. It will be a long hard road and hopefully he is a tough strong man to get through the next few months of rehab. and a new leg. I am amazed myself by these new technologies coming out every day. I hope he doesn't want to ride a bike ever again also and sticks to something with at least 4 wheels and a speedlimit ;) Thank you Tina for the update and hope the whole family is holding up well also at his greatest time of need.

Shouldn't have been drunk. Google Tony Vaughn accident and you will see he he hit a truck at a stop light. Btw riverside district attorney is pressing DUI charges. Just glad he wasn't driving a car and killed someone else.

We as a community need to recognize them. This is one of those stories that give the chills. I live in Temecula and this story was not written in our local patch and it should have been. You two are heros and thank God for your training as you did indeed save this young mans life. You also both live here and should be recognized for this. Not something most of us could do or stomach.
