“I took this picture just few minutes ago from the cab of my truck. It was an accident between campton and Stanton on the service road just off of the mountain parkway.
Zoom in and pay attention to the shadow just off the top of the state trooper hat. All I say is I hope everyone involved is okay!!”
Mr Vazquez told reporters that the photo had not been altered in any way.Officials said the motorcyclist – who has not been named – was taken to hospital in a serious condition after the crash on Tuesday evening.He later died from his wounds, they told Lex 18 .The man is thought to have been the only person involved in the incident, which occurred at around 5.30pm on Highway 15 near Stanton.Since it was posted online on Tuesday, Mr Vazquez’s photo has been shared more than 5,700 times.
