Memorial Motorcycle Ride Held For Woman Struck By Semi
TULSA, Oklahoma - On Saturday family and friends gathered on motorcycles to remember a young woman who they say had a big heart. Lennie Gray says what she remembers most about her daughter is her smile.
"I love her and I miss her, I'm going to miss her a lot," said Lennie.
Brooke Gray lost her life after troopers say her motorcycle wrecked near I-44 and union avenue last week. According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the Brooke lost control of her motorcycle and wrecked. They say she was then hit and run over by a truck that drove off without stopping.
Brooke's mother, Lennie Gray, says Brooke loved to ride motorcycles. Today dozens of people are showing their support for the family by taking a bike ride from 41st and memorial to Skiatook. According to Lennie, the ride is to not only to honor Brooke but to caution drivers to be more aware of motorcyclists.
"Those motorists have just as much right to the highways and roadways as anyone else," said Lennie.
Lennie says the driver who killed her was in a blue semi pulling a long trailer but has no other details. Brooke's family hopes someone will help them find that truck.
