Puddles, as everyone knows her was injured approximately noon Saturday as she rode with the Patriot Guard escorting the family of Dayton Soldier Sgt. Jesse Ainsworth from the funeral to the Houston National Cemetery.
Just as they crossed FM 2100 in Crosby traffic came to a stop on the main lanes of Highway 90. Puddles attempted to stop the bike but the rear started fishtailing forcing her to have to lay it down.
“Puddles” was transported by Crosby EMS to San Jacinto Medical Center in Baytown where she is being kept overnight for observation.
According to her husband she is scraped up a little but has no broken bones.
The motorcycle was not severely damaged, However her new paint job did show signs of scuffing.
The Patriot Guard rides on almost all Military funerals, Fire and Law Enforcement funeral and Welcome Home Ceremonies for our hero’s in the military.
I really appreciate how Charlie Cream, “Paw Paw’ of Crosby Paint and Body took the time and effort to load the bike and then store it inside to avoid any further damage to it. Charlie himself has son’s in the military and another that will ship out as a Chaplin’s Assistant in August.
I myself have been on many military funerals and memorials and it is always nice to see "”Puddles” smile and wave as she goes by.
Pray for these riders as they take on their duties and the traffic and situations they encounter on every mission.
