30 Year Military Veteran Dies in Hit and Run Motorcycle Accident

To say that I'm outraged is an understatement on this latest motorcycle fatality. Twenty three year old Orlando David Rodriguez and his Twenty five year old brother Santos Vidal Rodriguez left Casey's General Store without paying for $27 in gas. As they fled the scene in their SUV they hit Bruce James Mundy on his motorcycle. Mundy was pronounced dead on arrival to the hospital. My heart goes out to Master Sergeant Mundy's family and friends. My heart breaks each and every time a fellow rider is lost.

Just so senseless. And for $27.....

I hope the animals that killed
our fellow rider and a man who
served our country so bravely
sit in prison for a long time.

If this is anything other than
a murder charge our legal system
is a joke.

Always sad to hear a fellow veteran and rider has passed, especially under circumstances like this, and our prayers go out to his family.

Yea, I just don't get people. Heard it may go down as murder though.

Moments of haste have taken many good folks from us.

Take your time and let us live.

Vehicular homicide against the drunk girl who hit and killed that poor kid over on the East side... where are these charges against the people who killed this rider? They both should be charged - one as the driver, the other as an accessory. Both participated in felony theft, after all, and this death resulted from that.
