Jarheads MC Tragedy

Posted by Orlando Harley on Jul 1, 2019 2:17:00 PM

Orlando, Florida – July 1, 2019 – Orlando Harley Davidson remains in shock since learning that seven members of the Jarhead Motorcycle Club were killed in a horrible accident caused by the driver of a truck towing a flatbed trailer.  On June 25th, the driver was criminally charged. It is a woeful understatement that we are profoundly sad over this senseless and tragic loss and searching for how we might help.  

After consulting with a Jarhead Motorcycle Club representative, Laconia Harley-Davidson has committed to a donation of $20,000 for the families of those who lost their lives or were injured in the crash.  We will wire funds directly to the club this week; and they will disperse to the families on our behalf.  Of course, money cannot make up for the loss of the lives of fine people.  It is our hope that this contribution will in a small way assist families in the anguished times ahead. 

In addition, we are raising awareness for the GoFundMe page that the Jarheads organized, which has already over $500,000 towards a goal of $700,000. The Club has stressed no donation is too small.  Donations can be made at https://www.gofundme.com/jarheads-mc-victims-and-families-support.

It is our understanding that a ride is being coordinated to take place on Saturday July 6th from the Broken Spoke to support the fundraising effort.  Once we have gathered more details on this ride, we will send news on our social media channels.

We want to express our deepest condolences to the families on behalf of Laconia Harley-Davidson.
