An off-duty emergency medical technician from Berkeley was killed this morning in Albany after stopping to assist a driver involved in a solo-spinout on Interstate Highway 80.

Scott was a member of Burning Man's Emergency Services Department; he and his wife Chukka were two of the people who supported me greatly after my breakup with [livejournal.com profile] dafydd last year, making sure I got out of the house and Did Things every now and again. He will be missed.

He was also an activist in the local bi community. I didn't realize he was someone close to you. I'm sorry.

I hear you. He worked for us at BS and I knew the guy he was helping as well. Smallest. World. Ever.

I read the news article 3 times before I let myself grok that this was Chukka's husband. I met them both (after yakking with Chukka for over a year on the Eplaya) at last year's Xmas Spark Club. I haven't seen them IRL since, but I knwo one thing - Scott must have been very special to score with the scathing wit that is Chukka.

So sad, yet so unsurprising that when the universe decided to take Scott back, he went while helping another.

>> The CHP reported that Lofgren, after checking on the health of Toles, was setting up flares around the crash site when he was struck by another vehicle.

Goddessdamn it. Another of the good guys killed in a statistically likely, typical, and predictably senseless way -- by a moron.

Sorry I didn't get to meet you, sir. Goddess be with you and your loved ones.
